The History of the Faculty
The development of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences started in the year 1975. This was when the Teachers’ Colleges throughout the country divided their administration by instituting faculties which consisted of various fields of departments. This is aimed to produce students of the department of education program, majoring in the Thai language, as the first major of the faculty. Later, the majors of English and social studies were set up, respectively.
In 1995, His Majesty King Rama IX officially endorsed the upgrading of the teacher’s college to “Rajabhat Institute.” Consequently, the Faculty of Humanity and Social Science Programs has been changed into the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and eventually established undergraduate education in both humanities and social sciences. Later, in 2016, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences divided its management into 2 faculties which are the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Social Sciences (Establishment Project). The Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences administers the humanities, and the Head of the Establishment Project of the Faculty of Social Sciences executes the social sciences.
The faculty offers 7 undergraduate degree programmes. These are Thai Language, English Language, Library and Information Science, International Music, Japanese Language, English Business, Chinese Language, and a minor, French Language.
The Establishment Project of the Faculty of Social Sciences offers 5 undergraduate degree programmes. These are the Community Development, Public Administration Science, Laws, Political Sciences, and Social Administration.
