School of Arts & Social Sciences (SASS)
The KIU School of Arts & Social Sciences is designed to contribute to the social economic transformation of society through knowledge generation and dissemination. As one of the key faculties of the University, the school of Arts and Social Sciences has its goal as that of examining the society and its interests. The school is dedicated to the training, education, and producing researchers or general scholars and practitioners who have appropriate skills, knowledge, competences and attitudes to make ethical, professional, and creative contributions to their communities and the professional disciplines of human and social sciences. It is made up of three main divisions, Asian Studies, Humanities and Social Sciences. The Humanities division offers the following subjects: History, English language, English literature, Theatre studies and Philosophy. Within the Social Sciences division, the following subjects are offered: Communications and New Media, Economics, Geography, Political Science, Public Administration, Public Policy, International Relations, Development Studies, Psychology, Social work and Sociology
School of Business & Management Sciences (SBMS)
The school offers both undergraduate and graduate courses. At the school of business and management sciences studies combines elements of accountancy, finance, marketing, organizational studies and economics. Business Studies is a broad subject in the Social Sciences, allowing the in-depth study of a range of specialties such as accountancy, finance, organisation, human resources management and marketing. If you are graduating the school of business and management sciences, you will find a range of careers that are directly related to your qualification. While many of these careers are open to graduates in any subject, some employers will have a preference for graduates with a business background, and for others it may be a definite requirement. Your degree will provide useful background knowledge, evidence of some of useful skills, and possibly some exemptions from papers in professional examinations. Many business studies courses cover a range of subjects, but there are others, such as marketing, which have a specific vocational emphasis and this will also influence your choice of job.
School of Health & Medical Sciences (SHMS)
KIU School of Health and Medical Sciences offer both undergraduate and graduate courses. The school prepares students for careers in disciplines related to medicine, nursing, dentistry and other health occupations programs through therapeutic, diagnostic, rehabilitative, managerial and supportive services:
- Introduce students to nursing, medical, dental, and other health occupations
- Prepare students with basic skills for employment in nursing homes, clinics, medical and dental offices, hospitals, homes, and certain public health settings
- Facilitate entry into advanced health occupations programs that require post-high school education leading to state licensure, certification, registration, or national credentialing
- Enable students to become more knowledgeable consumers of health services.
School of Science, Engineering & Technology (SSET)
An Engineering Technology degree emphasizes the application of specific engineering techniques. Graduates with an Engineering Technology degree often seek employment in fields such as production, design, manufacturing and operations. At KIU in Engineering & Technology are closely related fields of study with noticeable differences in learning curriculum. Most notably, a Bachelor of Science in Engineering emphasizes theories and advanced concepts, while an Engineering Technology degree emphasizes hands-on application and implementation. At Florida Polytechnic University, the Bachelor of Science degree integrates applied and hands-on learning with theoretical and conceptual curriculum.
The degree programs offered by Kesmonds International University, focuses on the cross-disciplinary application of science and mathematics on structures, machines, systems and processes. This type of engineering degree prepares students to enter the workforce as professional engineers with skills that are applicable to a wide variety of industries. Students pursuing a degree of Science in Engineering & Technology typically focus on disciplines like computer, electrical, mechanical or industrial engineering. A degree in Engineering & Technology may explore include:
- Apply analysis and modeling to design engineering based solutions
- Identify emerging techniques, skills, methods and theories to solve engineering problems
- Design infrastructure such as buildings, highways and bridges
School of Agricultural & Veterinary Sciences (SAVS)
Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that enabled people to live in cities. Agriculture is also the art and science of cultivating the soil, growing crops and raising livestock. It includes the preparation of plant and animal products for people to use and their distribution to markets. Agriculture provides most of the world’s food and fabrics. Cotton, wool, and leather are all agricultural products. Agriculture also provides wood for construction and paper products. These products, as well as the agricultural methods used, may vary from one part of the world to another. Since the development of agriculture, many different types of production have been implemented. Currently, agriculture is divided into two different types, including industrialized agriculture and subsistence agriculture. Let’s explore and learn more about these two types of agriculture.
At KIU Veterinary scientists, technologists and technicians, as well as obedience trainers and even pet groomers, play a vital role in the maintenance and healthcare of pets, zoo animals, and livestock. In addition to meeting the healthcare and maintenance needs of animals, some individuals working in veterinary science use their skills to research diseases that also affect humans. For example, veterinary research played a significant role in conquering diseases such as yellow fever and malaria, and in understanding human heart disease, organ transplant procedures, and a variety of drug therapies.
