Message from the Dean

Welcome to the School of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.

The School is one of the four schools of the African University College of Communications (AUCC). It is a new school hived off from the Kojo Yankah School of Communication Studies. The School aims at broadening students’ academic horizons, enhancing their intellectual understanding the liberal arts and social sciences, and equipping them with the necessary knowledge and skills to meet changing needs of our society. The departments are encouraged to develop programmes for the award of certificates, diploma and first degrees in languages with special focus on Ghanaian languages and social sciences

Required Courses

No matter the school you are enrolled in all undergraduate students must register for and pass some general courses (i.e. university-required courses). If you do not pass them you cannot graduate. It is advisable you work hard and pass your general courses in the first year, and put them behind you. Indeed, all students are advised to begin with these courses regardless of programme or level of study.

It is mandatory that you obtain a minimum grade of D in any required course for which you have registered. Failing a required course however will affect your Grade Point Average (GPA), because all such courses registered for will be used in computing your GPA.
