The College of Social Science (CoSS) at University of Cambodia (UC) recently welcomed its new Associate Dean, Min Seiha, who will be responsible for advising students and strengthening the course offerings and programs under the CoSS.
Min Seiha is originally from Kampot province, where he was awarded the top student of Khmer Literature in the province and was ranked number 6 in Khmer Literature at the national level. He came to study in Phnom Penh in 2001 at the Royal University of Law and Economics and majored in Law. He continued his studies at the Royal School of Administration in 2005 and served in the Office of the Council of Ministers for 3years. In 2009, he won a scholarship to pursue a Master’s degree in Australia at the University of Canberra and majored in Public Administration and Management.
Most recently, at the University, Mr. Seiha served as an adviser for students who debated in a Red Cross program at TVK. He hopes to help improve the academic experiences of UC students by teaching them more about research, encouraging them to pursue advanced degrees, and strengthening their academic networks.
“I find that UC students are skillful and have great potential because they study by international standards, which. . .helps them to study with quality,” he said. Besides studying in class, UC students are also talented communicators and are active in social and educational activities outside of the classroom, he added.
The University would like to extend a warm welcome to Min Seiha into the UC team and family, and looks forward to the positive contributions he will make to the CoSS and student life on campus.
