I take pleasure in directing your attention to the contents of the Faculty of Social Sciences Regulations and Syllabus booklet. It is designed to provide the student and other interested persons with a condensed and informative introduction to the Faculty’s undergraduate programmes. We at the Faculty trust that you will make good use of this op- portunity to review the courses we offer. As you discover the wide range of possibilities that the Faculty places at your disposal, do not hesitate to ask questions and provide us with suggestions to make this brochure easier to use. Once again, I invite you to explore our environment. It is our proud tradition to encourage you to ask questions about, and to provide answers to, the challenges and issues facing the Carib- bean and the wider world. Please ensure that you read this booklet carefully. Best wishes, Hamid Ghany Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences
