Message of HOD

Dear Students,

The Department of History and Political Science is committed to the teaching, research and promotion of the subject areas of History, Politics, International Relations, Public Administration, Heritage Studies and Anthropology. Its expertise in these subject areas is recognized both locally and internationally, and the department regularly receives visiting academics from overseas and organizes public seminars and conferences. Through our programmes students acquire the necessary knowledge and skills that enable them to find employment in teaching, non-governmental organizations, international institutions, heritage studies, cultural tourism and the media. The department encourages students to make the most of their time while at the University of Mauritius and to participate in the various activities organized by us and that take place on campus throughout the academic year.

Warm regards,

Dr. Leo Couacaud
Head of Department
