Message from the Dean

The School of Social, Political and Administrative Sciences is founded on the recognition that what happens in the world matters to Rwanda and should shape our classroom experience. Equally, what happens in Rwanda matters to the world, and should be studied, analyzed and publicized for the benefit of all. At SSPAS we support serious scholarship and the practical application of knowledge that addresses Rwanda's post-genocide context, its development successes and challenges, its history and its future. By integrating theory and practice, locally relevant knowledge can generate broader understandings of the social and cultural changes that are impacting Africa.

At SSPAS we offer a first-class education aimed at understanding and analyzing Rwanda's cultural, social, development and governance contexts with the goals of measuring, explaining and effecting progressive change at national, regional and international levels
