UKZN embarked on a reconfiguration process which gave birth to a College model. Within the College of Humanities, the School of Social Sciences was formed. The School is comprised of three former Schools: the School of Anthropology, Gender and Historical Studies; the School of Politics and the School of Sociology and Social Studies. It is fully operational on both Howard and Pietermaritzburg campuses.
The School is under the leadership of the Dean/Head of School:Prof Stephen Mutula.
The two main components of the School are Research and Higher Degrees. Professor Sabine Marschall is the Head of Research and Prof Ruth Hoskins is the Head of Teaching and Learning. The School is further divided into four (4) thematic clusters:
