Faculty of Social Sciences

The Faculty of Social Sciences offers a programme for Master of Arts (MA) in Sustainable Development.

Sustainable development is about meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The latter will depend on how well we balance social, cultural, economic, and environmental objectives when making decisions today. Combating poverty is a prerequisite for achieving sustainable development. Economic growth and social development is essential to reduce poverty. However, we must not forget the environmental component of sustainability. The international community has recognised that development can be sustainable only if all natural resources are used in such a way that present and future generations around the world have an equal opportunity to live and prosper. Sierra Leone is among the other nations around the world that have endorsed sustainable development as a way forward strategy in enhancing development and management of its resources and the environment.
