I am Prof. (Dr.) Anumudu Eugenia Chinadu, the Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences (FSS) of the British American University, Florida, USA. I am pleased to welcome you to the Faculty, and I am glad to tell you that your interest and educational aspirations will be well taken care of here! Generally, you would observe that the FSS at the American Registered and fully Accredited University offers various courses in Social Sciences including Economics, Political Science, Mass Communication, Sociology, Psychology and International Relations that provide students with a sound general education supplemented by the technological skills required in today’s work environment. Our students learn to address the real problems of contemporary social scientists and gain insight into the societal activities, behaviors, and strategies of people, organizations, markets, and industries. Our teaching methods are fused with analysis and actions so that classes are simultaneously demanding, fun, intense, and always dynamic. Our goal is to create a teaching and learning environment where students learn how to tackle difficult and complex societal problems. Students learn what they feel like to exercise judgment, make tangible decisions, and take responsibility.

We are a multicultural Faculty, representing many countries! During their studies here, students work with Faculty members who are nationally and internationally recognized for their research, academic and professional publications as well as their excellence in Law and Criminology as well as social sciences. Our degree graduates are among the brightest, most principled, and accomplished young people of our time. We are proud to graduate people who are committed to high standards and have the capacity to work hard and be dynamic and versatile leaders not only of today but also of the nearest future.
