The School of Applied Human Sciences at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, is one of six schools within the College of Humanities (the University has four colleges), was established on the 1st of January 2012 with the amalgamation of four large and complementary applied scientific fields of study: Culture, Communication and Media Studies (CCMS), Criminology and Forensic Studies, Psychology and, Social Work

    The School also has several renowned hubs of excellence, clinics, and strategic thinking groups. The School has three beautiful learning sites within the Zulu Kingdom (parallel, within relative terms, to the Indian Ocean [warm subtropical climate and extensive beaches]), namely, Howard College Campus (near the great metropolitan City of Durban), Westville Campus (also City of Durban), and Pietermaritzburg Campus (City of Pietermaritzburg [capital of the KwaZulu-Natal Province within the Republic of South Africa]).
