THE MESSAGE OF THE RECTOR
Cyprus Social Sciences University, the youngest university in Cyprus, was founded in 2014. In 2015, we first accepted the Department of Theology Faculty of Religious Sciences in our university, establishing three faculties and four departments. In the fall semester of 2016-2017, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Department of Psychology, the Faculty of Law, the Department of Educational Sciences, and the Department of Guidance and Psychological Counselling began to educate.
Beginning this academic year, 2017-2018, we accepted students to the Department of Turkish Language Teaching, English Language Teaching and Arabic Language Teaching.
Although in our infancy, we still rely on all the traditional values of higher education. CSSU is a university that aims to be a centre of excellence in society by building and acquiring the strengths that it needs.
Our university will provide education and training building a foundation of knowledge acquisition to develop intellectual experience and perspectives that will enhance the personalities of students and deliver skills and competencies required for basic professional and competitive growth.
Our aim is to educate graduates who can study and question all the world developments, critically analyse events, and express themselves verbally in writing. We hope to develop graduates with high social skills and strong leadership abilities, and who feel comfortable working individually or as part of a team.
We are in Cyprus: We trust Cyprus. We believe that Cyprus will become a higher education centre in the near future. We want to contribute to this within the foundation logic without making a profit.
I believe we can do this together.
