Welcome to the Faculty of Social Culture and Development Studies (SCAD). Each academic year, SCAD receives students from various walks of life and different regions of Uganda and the world. We shape them into critical minded fellows, innovators, transformative leaders and managers in the fields of tourism and hotel management, mass communication, guidance and counselling, development studies and social work. The teaching and learning programmes at SCAD give students the knowledge and skills to contribute to society in these chosen fields of endeavour. The faculty encourages and promotes a world-class learning environment where teaching, learning and research take place in ways that are inspirational and innovative.
SCAD provides an intellectually, socially and personally transformative experience that prepares students to be employable, innovative and enterprising. Equally, the faculty maintains links with the alumni. The faculty is proud of the diverse community of students and alumni engaged in various careers in many parts of the country and the world. SCAD offers community-linked learning approaches through field work visits in the local settings where students participate as interns and identify research problems.
During my tenure as a dean of SCAD, my main aim is to lead the Faculty of Social Culture and Development Studies in developing international collaborations for capacity building and into a dynamic unit that equips students with skills needed to influence the social, cultural and development practices and policies for sustainable development of Uganda and beyond.
I encourage you to come visit us and get to know the academic programs and to interact with lecturers who are dedicated to transformative teaching and perform edge-cutting research.
