  • FOREWORD
    The Department of Biological Sciences was established in the 2011/2012 Session and degree programme commenced with the student’s arrival.
    The undergraduate degree programme commenced in the 2011/2012 session, the idea is for two degrees, namely; B.Sc. Biology and B.Sc. Microbiology. The fundamental philosophy behind the two programmes is the provision of broad—based training and for the fact that all 100 level courses are core to all the students. The Department as it is intends to grow tremendously over the years both in terms of human, material and infrastructural resources to commence degree programmes in: Plant Science and Biotechnology; as well as in Zoology and Environmental Biology.
    This proposal is being made in response to the overwhelming desire of staff to diversify our undergraduate degree option. This proposal is therefore to be submitted for consideration and subsequent approval by the Academic board and Senate.

    PHILOSOPHY
    The philosophy of biological sciences department is to produce graduates with all round knowledge in theory, technology and skills in order to make them leaders, managers and operators in schools, higher institutions, agricultural and natural resources management industries. It is also aimed at engaging in research, extension services with a view of producing well-matured graduates, who will contribute to the advancement of biological knowledge at local, national and global levels for the enhancement of ecological-economic wellbeing of humans, plants and animals. The philosophy also aims at pursuit of pace-setting academic innovation that will enhance the production of graduates with entrepreneurial spirit of excellence and globally competitive capabilities.
    VISION
    To be a focused, proactive, dynamic, upward-bound and foremost centre for teaching and research in the science of Biology; producing well nurtured graduates that will be in a position to contribute to the advancement of biological knowledge at local, national and global levels.
