Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (FHSS) is the oldest faculty of study at the university: It was formed in 1958 concurrent with the establishment of the university, which was then called “Vidyodaya.” Initially, the main goal of FHSS was to promote national languages and culture. However, since then, the faculty has evolved as a modern center of higher education in social sciences and humanities with more focus on research in these areas. The faculty provides a high quality education in a large number of study fields and offers Bachelor of Arts (General) and Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree programs.
