The Department of Liberal Studies is the heartbeat of Koforidua Technical University because of its servicing nature and one of the departments of the Faculty of Business and Management Studies. The department, a servicing one, has academic staff whose specialities transcend a single professional training as it provides multidisciplinary knowledge and skills. It has gained its place in the University as a provider of a fair share of a broad spectrum of cognitive training that develops skills and knowledge of students. It also works in close relation with the Directorate of Language Center. The department services all other departments in the Koforidua Technical University by offering a number of interdisciplinary courses. These courses are Communication Skills, Business Communication, African Studies, Law, Economics, French, Research Methodology and Entrepreneurship. The Department of Liberal Studies has dedicated and distinguished teaching staff that help students to achieve their educational and career goals.
Our vision is to develop a viable, efficient and effective system of innovating training in research, language use, legal, economic, historical and contemporary issues while maintaining linkage with engineering sciences to stir up the growth and development of the University.
To spark off the effective cognitive development of our students to become all-round dynamic professionals, who are not limited in critical thinking and problem solving and fit into the ever-growing complex global village
