Book of Abstracts 2012-2018 ( PDF Document )

This book would not have been completed to this standard without the voluntary work of the following colleagues: Mr. Meja Kindimbo and Prof Philemon Lyoka for digging deep in the ten years old student archives. Prof Casmir Rubagumya and Dr. Safari Mafu for editing the English language and flow. Mr. Martine Jackson Kusekwa for type setting into a print version of the book manuscript.

This thematic presentation of abstracts per faculty/school presents a selection of empirical studies of Masters’ cohort who graduated from 2012 to 2018 at St John’s University of Tanzania. In general, the book shows areas much studied, least studied and forgotten areas too. It should serve as one of the reference sources for both students and dons towards gaining insights on research and how to use research towards transformation of our dynamic society.
