University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg
The Faculty of Humanities at the University of the Witwatersrand is one of the leading centres of undergraduate and postgraduate studies and research in South Africa and Africa.
It offers a wide range of programmes. Some of these are vocationally oriented and lead to careers in specific professions; others are theory and research oriented and impart critical analytical skills that offer graduates access to a range of careers in academia and research institutes, the public and private sectors and non-governmental organisations, among others.
Most of the Faculty’s programmes seek to be at the cutting-edge of postgraduate studies by taking innovative multi-disciplinary, cross-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary approaches, linking the arts, social sciences, natural science, law and management. Our students go through rigorous theoretical and methodological training which imparts strong research and analytical skills and enables them to adapt to the constantly changing world of work.
In practice, the Faculty seeks to creatively and critically engage with its location in Johannesburg – arguably South Africa’s most globally networked city – and with the city’s dynamic political, social, economic and cultural links to Africa and the world.
