Welcome Message & from Vice Chancellor!

Dear Friends, Students, Lecturers and Researchers worldwide, Welcome to the Protestant Institute of Arts and Social Sciences website. PIASS is a private, independent and accredited Higher Learning Institution owned by Protestants Churches in Rwanda that intends to promote a conducive environment for studying social sciences. Through a user friendly style, our website offers practical information you want to know about our Strategic Orientations and our three Faculties: Education,

Development Studies and Theology. You may also learn about recent events and have a glance at our two campuses, in Huye and Karongi districts and even register on-line. We do hope the website will mirror the dynamics and growth of our academic institution, in terms of research, new domains, innovation and academic partnerships without forgetting services to the community through events, consultancies and short courses. I feel proud of this vibrant institution, its enthusiasm and its commitment to quality solutions and ethical standards. Please feel free to make any suggestions and comments that will help us to keep abreast of African developments of all people.
