A warm welcome to our website! We are so happy that you have taken the time to explore what academic programs we have to offer. The Department of Social Studies is at the heart of Maasai Mara University in the School of Arts and Social Sciences.

The Department is home to Social Work, Community Development, Political Science, Public Administration, Criminology and Penology, Religion, Philosophy, History, and Sociology. These programs lead to both undergraduate and Graduate Masters Degrees. Delivering these programs is a team of qualified and competent teaching faculty and administrative staff that work together as a synergy. We focus on student-centered learning and salient applications in the real world. Our graduates are formed to be equipped with appropriate theories, methodologies, and frameworks. This facilitates critical analysis and sound research. We churn out a civic competent graduate who make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse democratic society in an interdependent world.

The department is an exciting and dynamic place. I encourage you to join our dynamic and productive academic community. We welcome all prospective students and hope you will find a program to suit your needs and interests on this website.
