The Faculty of Humanities at Chancellor College,
a constituent college of the University of Malawi,
comprises eight academic departments, namely African
Languages and Linguistics, Classics, English, Fine and
Performing Arts, French, Language and Communication Skills,
Philosophy, and Theology and Religious Studies.
Besides teaching and research, these departments offer
consultancy services in a range of disciplines in the arts
and humanities. The faculty also offers content courses to
students in the Faculty of Education – supporting their
training to become teachers of languages and the arts in
secondary schools. Postgraduate degrees are also offered

The Faculty has a centre, Centre for Language Studies
(CLS), and it also oversees Chancellor College Community

link between the College and UNIMA affiliated colleges
under the Board for Theological Studies (BTS). The faculty
publishes the Journal of Humanities (JH) yearly.
