Dean’s Welcome Address

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the webpage of the Faculty of Social and Management Sciences (FSMS) of Umaru Musa Yar’adua University, Katsina. You will find detailed information on these pages regarding our activities – the programs which we offer in the Faculty; the core competencies of our respective departments; and the strength of our staff and their expertise and diverse specializations. It is my hope, therefore, that you will find all these information relevant, current and, above all, enriching as you seek to know more about FSMS.

Working with a small but vibrant team of dedicated and committed academic staff drawn from our various departments, the Deanery as the hub of the Faculty has put in place various measures and mechanisms to facilitate learning in a pleasant manner with a convivial atmosphere of collegiality. This is borne out of our conviction that best learning strategies should be students’ centered that offer opportunities for greater interaction and mentorship with academic staff.

The Deanery, with the active support and participation of the departments in the Faculty, is working hard to ensure the successful integration of the core values and principles underpinning the quest for knowledge in our curricula. We are also working fervently to ensure the successful attainment of the goals and objectives of UMYU at all times. At the present, our mission is to excel in producing students imbued with the fear of God; broad mental and intellectual outlook to appreciate and tolerate contending perspectives; and love and respect for humanity with deep passion for societal development.

As you browse the contents of our multiple pages, I will like to give you my solemn assurances, on behalf of all staff in the Faculty, of our readiness and commitment to your success here in Umaru Musa Yar’adua University and beyond, insha Allah..
