  • FOREWORD
    I feel highly honoured to write the foreword to the students hand book. The Department of History and Strategic Studies is one of the departments of the University. It is a young and dynamic department with very hard working academic and non-academic staff. It also has vibrant young students who are full of energy and are ready to learn. However the fortunes of history as a discipline have dwindled in recent years. This is due to the frequent policy changes in the education sector one of which was the abolition of history in the curriculum of primary and secondary schools in the country. The effect of this policy on the discipline has been tremendous as few candidates presently apply to read history in Nigerian Universities. The relevance of history in the society can never be over-emphasized. And any group or society without a history loses its identity. Therefore we as professional historians are making a clarion call on the federal government to reconsider its earlier position on the policy and make the teaching of history compulsory in both primary and secondary schools in the country. We in the department are resolute in our avowed determination to teach and research on the rich cultural heritage of the people of Nigeria and most especially that of our locality. It is my hope that the department will maintain the current tempo of academic activities especially as we are preparing to graduate our first set of students at the end of the current academic session.
    YECHO ELIZABETH IHUGH (HOD)

    PHILOSOPHY
    The Philosophy of the Department emphasizes the multidisciplinary approach to the study and development of history. It is also meant to guide the student to be well grounded in the study of history and historiography. By so doing, they would develop very sound and analytical minds. The aim is for them to acquire and develop independent and objective judgment of issues in their environment, also prepare them for greater roles in the society.
    VISION
    To be a top ranking world class University, committed to execelence in research and the production of a generation of leaders with passion for service.
    MISSION

    OBJECTIVE(S)
    The major objective of the academic programme of the Department of History and Strategic Studies is to give students a thorough understanding of Nigerian History, and historiography against the backdrop of African and world History. By so doing, students will acquire the skills to critically and rigorously analyze local and global historical movements that have shaped the lives of ordinary people of Nigeria, Africa and the World over. Besides, the intellectual development that arises from the study of History, the History programme of the Federal University, Dutsin-ma will also confer upon the students the analytical faculty and balanced judgment needed, particularly for research and administrative and managerial responsibilities.
    Although the programme emphasizes Nigerian and African History in that order, the realities of our contemporary world necessitate comparative study of other major areas of Europe and Asia and the new insights into the main political, social and economic forces that have shaped specific historical events. Students are also to acquire some awareness on how these historical events and other factors have enhanced or impeded world historical developments. In their first and second years, students are introduced to the histories of major areas of the World and to the basic techniques of the historical craft. In their third and fourth years, students are able to take more specialized courses which at the same time introduce them to a wide variety of approaches to History writing and research. In the final year, they have an opportunity to try their hands at small-scale researches in the form of their research projects. In addition, a number of specialized courses are offered based on documents which help to give them the feel of historical research and interpretation.
