The Faculty of Education came into existence in 1968. But before then, department of Education had existed as one of the departments in the faculty of Arts. At that point in time, the Department offered programmes in Education, Library Science and Postgraduate Diploma in Education. In 1968, when the Faculty of Education was founded, the department of Education became one of its constituent component with staff strength of about seven, mostly expatriates. It was vested with the responsibilities of designing and implementing curricular that led to the award of degrees, especially B.Ed degrees which were run essentially based on academic structure of two years. In the course of time, the department grew both in number of academic programmes and staff size. For example, in 1970-1971 academic session, the Bachelor of Science Education programme was started alongside the B.Ed programme. Other programmes later introduced include B.Sc (Ed) Mathematics Education (1970); B.Ed (Mathematics) 1978; B.Ed(Islamic Studies) about 1983 and B.Ed (Christian Religious Studies) in 1990. The expansion continued to induce introduction of other programmes such as B.Ed (Creative Arts); B.Ed (Language Arts) in English and Hausa, B.Ed (Educational Administration and Planning); B.Ed (Social Studies) and B.Ed (Arts and Social Sciences). Even though some of the latter programmes were suspended some five years back by the erstwhile University Administration, there is high hopes that they will soon be revived.

Way forward

SCIENCE EDUCATION

In 1968, when the Faculty of Education was established, the Department of Education became one of its components with staff strength of about seven, mostly expatriates. It was vested with the responsibilities of designing and implementing curricular that led to the award of degrees: BSc. (ed) and BA (ed) degrees. Later on BEd degrees were established which were run based on academic structure of two years. In the course of time, the department grew both in number of academic programmes (both undergraduate and postgraduate) and staff size. At its 441st meeting held on 25th August 2011, the Senate was informed of the NUC’s approval for the establishment of four departments derived from the former Department of Education with the Department of Science Education as one of them consisting of the following degree programmes:
