The Department’s Mission is to provide qualitative education through quality teaching and learning methods that will inculcate in our students the capacity to engage in integrated life-applicable and life-transforming research targeted at solving such societal problems as poverty and hunger; unemployment; illiteracy; gender inequality; high infant, child and maternal mortality as well as reproductive health challenges including HIV/AIDS. This is with the aim of improving the quality of life of the average Nigerian and that of the black man in general.
