The department of Development Studies was set up with the aim of grouping fellow academicians in the Faculty of Social Sciences who have similar discipline or area of interest (i.e. development studies). The grouping of individuals with similar interest will help to boost research activities in the common areas of interest. Research activities would focus and examine the problems, processes, and prospects for the development of human and material resources in what is generally thought to be the less developed areas of the world.
