By this, students are exposed to inter-disciplinary learning which affords them to develop a broad outlook and horizon. We also offer Diploma, Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE), Master in Education (M.Ed), Master of Art in Education (M.A.Ed), Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D). The Faculty in collaboration with Centre for Distance Learning of the University runs Part-Time programmes to cater for teachers on- the -job to afford them the privilege of self-actualization and job stability. The Faculty engages in professional capacity building programmes in form of short-term training and seminars and as well moderates educational standards of Colleges of Education around.

As you peruse our website and explore the available activities, it is hoped that you will be well-enlightened and motivated to interact with us.
