The Department of Sociology has initiated a series of certificate courses to enhance its extension and community service role. While these courses are designed to offer selected aspects of the Department’s expertise to the community, they are meant for individuals with an interest in the specific subjects rather than for people with preexisting university backgrounds or with general entry level qualifications for university admission. As such, individuals with General Certificate of Education (Ordinary Level) or General Certificate of Education (Advanced Level) qualifications may apply for these courses. The first two courses in the series have already been designed and are to be advertised. These are:

• Certificate Course in Community Development Practice ;

• Basic Research Methods in Social Sciences.

Application details, deadlines and procedures will be notified via the newspapers and the web.
