Faculty of Agriculture



FACULTY OF AGRICULTURE IN BRIEF

The Faculty of Agriculture started a four-year integrated B.Sc. (Honours) Agriculture degree programme for direct entry students with ‘A’ level or equivalent qualifications in 1980/81 session with 13 students. The programme was based on a “course units system”. The third year of the programme was devoted entirely to on-farm practical training. In 1985/86 session, the programme was reviewed to allow for the admission of students with ‘O’ level who would then graduate after five years. Since then, the practical training has shifted to the fourth year. From 1990 to date, the programme has been modified to a professional one named B. Agriculture. The programme were revised in 1989 and in 2013 to conform to the NUC Approved Minimum Academic Standards. The seven constituent Departments of the Faculty are those of Agricultural Extension and Rural Development, Agricultural Economics, , Animal Science, Crop Science, Fisheries and Aquaculture, Forestry and Environment and Soil Science and Agricultural Engineering. The Faculty offers three undergraduate programmes namely B. Agriculture, B. Fisheries, and B. Forestry.
