What are faculties?

Each institution of education divides itself into areas of learning : for example Agriculture, Art, Engineering, Science. These are called Faculties. Within each faculty they then offer certificates, diplomas and degrees. Some TVET colleges just call each set, programmes. Sometimes institutions (especially in America) call them colleges.

For example:

“Humanities” includes modern languages, literature, philosophy, religion, and musicology. Most humanities faculties also include social sciences, history, archaeology, anthropology, communication studies, classical studies, law and linguistics.

Names of faculties can differ from institution to institution. In South Africa these are the names you could come across at university (below). FET Colleges may call them ‘Learning Fields’ but the divisions and names are roughly the same.
