Strathmore University to launch three new degree programs

BA in Communication studies, BA in International Studies and BA in Development Studies and Philosophy are latest Strathmore University degree programs.


Strathmore University, Kenya’s leading not-for-profit higher education institution, is soon launching three new degree programs that will respond to growing demand for specialized skills by media, international organizations and development agencies in the country.


Strathmore University will be launching Social Science-oriented undergraduate programs, which goes to complete the university’s already well respected multi-disciplinary learning approach. The launch of these programs including Development Studies and Philosophy, International Studies and Communication Studies will mark new milestone for the institution and will be celebrated on 23rd March at an event in Strathmore Business School Auditorium.


The School of Humanities and Social Sciences, previously Institute of Humanities, Education and Development Studies or IHEDS (till 2011) already runs two Master Programs: The Master of Science in Education Management (MSc.EM) and Master of Applied Philosophy and Ethics (MAPE) both highly commended by their graduates. Strathmore said these Masters programs have changed most graduates approach to life, the way they work and their role in society today. SHSS supports Strathmore’s writing centre and teaches Japanese, French, Spanish, Mandarin and German languages. The School is also behind the strong foundation ethics training cascaded into all academic programs at the university.


“We are keen to launch a set of new high quality, ethics-driven studies in response to industry demands. The Strathmore graduate product standards continue to be driven by a strong quality policy enhanced by collaboration with industry and a foundation in ethics,” said the Dean School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Prof. Christine Gichure.


The programs will be structured into day time classes and with the option for evening study.

A study on employers’ hiring preferences conducted in 2015 showed Strathmore graduates were most sought after in the Kenya job market, alongside those from the University of Nairobi.


Strathmore was ranked top university in the region last month by Webometrics in the regional private universities rankings. Another ranking has crowned the institution the second only after Makerere University in the integration of ICT in learning. Strathmore University presently offers 14 Undergraduate Programs and 13 Masters Programs.
