Head of Department

Welcome to our Department. We strive to be a leading humanities and social science based academic department in Papua New Guinea and in the Pacific Islands Region. The department’s mission is to develop and offer relevant academic courses and professional programs, to initiate and carry out theoretically grounded policy research, and to provide engaged community service. All of these activities are aimed at cultivating broad human knowledge and appropriate skill sets and levels, developing innovative and creative abilities, and instituting discipline and proper conduct of behaviour in the larger society.

The department is offering a degree in Bachelor of Technology in Communication for Development Studies (BTCD).  The department also offers four post graduate programs: one graduate diploma, two masters’ degree program and a PhD program.

Though subject names, contents and codes have changed, the focus on teaching language and communication skills for learning science and technology has remained. With the introduction of google classroom CDS Department has shifted to delivering its teaching through a more flexible mode, hence more accessible just about anywhere around the globe.
