The Faculty of Administrative Science and Policy Studies was established on January 14, 2004 . Although a new faculty (in name), the historical roots date back to 1965 when the School of Administration and Law was set up. The school began as a center offering British external programs namely, the Chartered Institute of Secretaries (now Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators) and external LLB (Honours), University of London . The only internal program offered then was the Diploma in Public Administration and Local Government. This flagship program was renamed Diploma in Public Administration and is now also offered via the Electronic Distance Learning mode in almost all campuses.
