TUT Faculty of Humanities
The Faculty of Humanities is the largest faculty at Tshwane University of Technology, comprising ten academic departments and offering more than 60 academic programmes. Under this Faculty, we have the departments of Applied Languages; Integrated Communication; Journalism; Law; Public Management; Safety and Security Management, as well as the newly-established School of Education. During 2016, the Faculty conferred a total of 24 doctoral degrees and 42 master’s degrees.
Located primarily in Soshanguve, about 30km north of Pretoria, most of the Faculty’s programmes are offered through contact education. We also have about 1 500 distance education students registered in the Department of Safety and Security Management. These students are supported from two service points, namely Cape Town and Durban. Some of our programmes are also offered at the eMalahleni, Mbombela and Polokwane campuses.

Short Learning Programmes
Emerging Management Development Programme
The National School of Government (NSG) has been established to develop “a professional, responsive and capable public sector”. As part of its mission, NSG collaborates with higher education institutions in South Africa, and the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) is one of them. NSG has partnered with TUT in the delivery of Emerging and Advanced Development Management Programmes. These programmes were approved by Senate as credit bearing Short Learning Programmes (SLP). Their articulation routes are the National Diploma and B Tech in Public Management, respectively.
The involvement of TUT in the delivery of these programmes for the NSG gives the University an opportunity to directly make a contribution towards building the capacity of the state. This is beyond the monetary benefit of third-stream income. The partnership asserts TUT’s competitive edge in the knowledge market. It profiles its capacity as a national asset which exists for the public good. The articulation arrangements are structured to attract experienced government officials to, upon completion of the programmes, further their studies with the University. This gives TUT an opportunity to attract matured students into its mainstream programmes. The University’s association with NSG further assists in curricula development endeavours, where contextual relevance of its instructional programmes is assured.
