Department History

With the creation of the Faculty of Education in 1976 from the Faculty of Arts, two Departments, namely Curriculum and Teaching and Continuing Education werer started in the 1977/78 Academic Session. By 1981/82 Session, a new Department was created out of Department of Curriculum and Teaching known as Department of Educational Foundations and Administration. The creation of this Department gave a wider spectrum to the study and teaching of Educational Administration and Planning as a course within the Faculty of Education. Thus, the Department of Educational Administration and Planning was formally created from the Department of Educational Foundations and Administration in 1997/98 Academic Session.
