The School of Inter-disciplinary and Trans-disciplinary Studies (SOITS) was established in 2007 with the following objectives:
- To offer various interdisciplinary programmes;
- To undertake research and development in the areas of study that are interdisciplinary in nature.
The School has been conducting two on-campus Masters Degree programmes, M.A.in Social Anthropology and M.A in Labour and Development Studies since July 2009. In keeping with the policies of the University, the School will now devote itself to developing programmes based on Open and Distance Learning pedagogy. Some of the programmes proposed to be developed cover the areas of labour and development, workers’ rights, migration and diaspora studies and population studies. The School also has a rigorous research programme in interdisciplinary areas and has on its rolls research scholars with a heterogenous profile.
