  • FOREWORD
    I am delighted to write this foreword to this maiden edition of the Undergraduate Students’ Handbook of the Department of Agricultural Economics and Extension. This Handbook is produced in line with one of the academic requirements of the National University Commission (NUC). It is designed to provide essential information and assist students of the Department on academic programmes, requirements and regulations of the Department and University in general. It contains vital information that could help reduce incidences of preventable academic blunders. It also serves as an important guide for the returning students. This Handbook is quite comprehensive, outlining the historical background, philosophy, vision, mission and objectives of the B.Agric programme. Also, admission and graduation requirements, and other relevant information that students would need to make a successful educational pursuit in the University are spelt out. Timely and continuous review of the academic curriculum is carried out at the Departmental level with a view to making the programme relevant to the needs and development of society. Notably, the programme will enable graduates of the Department to be innovative and relevant in terms of job creation, with more focus on Agricultural development at national level. Information contained in the Handbook is based on the Department’s specific guidelines and therefore, is not a substitute for the University’s Student Handbook. Every student is enjoined to consult his/her Academic Adviser on all issues relating to the B.Agric programme. Students are further advised to read the University’s Student Handbook and other information bulletins of the University. These, often, contain additional relevant information on aspects of campus social activities that enhance the acquisition of a complete University experience by students. I wish to use this medium to welcome all our students, fresh and returning, and wish them a fulfilling undergraduate programme during their sojourn in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Extension, Federal University Dutsin-Ma.
