B.Sc. Biology Programme
Philosophy of BSc. Biology Programme
The philosophy behind the BSc. Biology Programme is to produce graduates with a broad-based degree, a good
working knowledge in other areas of pure and applied sciences, which will be very useful to society.
It will also endow the products of the B.Sc. Biology Programme with the ability to make valuable contributions
to contemporary biological issues of national and international interest.
This strategy will broaden the employment opportunities of our graduates as they will be better prepared after training to establish as private entrepreneurs, or take up employment in various organizations.
The specific academic objectives of the B.Sc. Biology degree Programme are to:
- To train academically sound future researchers and intellectuals in the area of general biology, with emphasis in areas on the cutting edge of modern biology, e.g., Molecular biology, Biotechnology, Genetics, Cytology, Cell and Tissue Culture, and Environmental Conservation.
- To contribute to discoveries and innovations in these aspects of the biological science discipline through research.
- To provide expert counsel and consultancy services to national and international organizations on issues relating to general biology.
- To instill qualities of self-confidence and self-reliance in crops of prospective young Nigerian biologists.
Some graduates of the Biology Programme have been known to enroll in the MBBS and other medical and applied biology Programme s in furtherance of their carrier in the biological sciences.Admission Requirements:
