Research & Publication in the School of Arts & Social Sciences
The western region where Maseno University is situated provides the faculty a truly rich, fertile and diverse area for research activities. Indeed, geographical positioning in the heart of western region of Kenya has encouraged us to capitalize on the rapidly growing region as our laboratory and inspiration. All departments are involved in ground breaking research complimenting discipline-based research conducted in the various departments. Our research has given focus to the globalised and consistent flows of information, thoughts and practices.
