Message from the HOD
Welcome to the Department of Biological Sciences. The University adopted the Faculty system in 2016, which gave birth to the Department of Pure and Applied Sciences in 12th July, 2016.
In September 2021, the Department of Biological Sciences emerged from the Department of Pure and Applied Sciences. The department currently runs a B.Sc. Biology with full accreditation by NUC.
B.Sc. Biology Programme commenced in 2011/2012 academic session. The programme provides constituent courses to other programmes in the Faculty of Sciences and relevant Science Education Programmes of the Faculty of Education. The programme is intended for students who are primarily interested in careers as professional biologists or wish to have a thorough grounding in biology in preparation for professional or graduate school in biology and other related disciplines. The programme seeks to promote science by developing graduates who would acquire knowledge and skill through hands-on experience and supporting use of technologies such as virtual and dry laboratories, as well as other ODL infrastructure to ensure no barrier to learning and access.
