The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS) will present over 2000 graduands for the award of degrees and diplomas on the last day of the 71st graduation ceremony, tomorrow, Friday, 21st May 2021. Of these, 22 will be awarded PhDs and 200 Masters Degrees in various disciplines of the Humanities and Social Sciences. According to the Principal of CHUSS, Dr Josephine Ahikire, the high number of PhD graduands this time round, is attributed to cohort PhD training largely supported by Gerda Henkel Stiftung in Germany and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in New York. The success is also attributed to a dedicated team of academic supervisors.
In addition to the PhD and Masters graduands, all the 41 undergraduate students who attained First Class Honours Degree will be physically present in the Freedom Square. The other graduands, parents and guardians will follow the event on NTV and the University social media platforms.
