The School is composed of six disciplines: Psychology, Social Work, History, Sociology, Gender Studies, and Pacific Policing. We aim for research and teaching excellence in each of these disciplines. We have a great team of scholars and support staff who come from all over the Pacific and beyond. Our team is expanding, and every year new research and teaching stars are arriving to join the School.
Our goal is to produce research that is both theoretically strong and practically focused, and which addresses important social issues in the Pacific Region. Among other topics our scholars and postgraduate students examine issues such as sexual prejudice, migration, non-communicable diseases, domestic violence, and bias against minority cultures.
In addition to our research achievements, the School has an exemplary teaching record. Our primary goal in teaching is to create a learning environment that ensures each and every student reaches their full potential. In addition to our undergraduate offerings the School has several postgraduate programs, and accepts Masters and PhD candidates.
The School of Social Sciences is located in the CELT building (building 2A on the campus map) in Suva’s beautiful Laucala campus.
