Humanities Unit

Objectives and Scope

The current content of the Humanities Programme focuses on the crisis of development in the developing world, with Nigeria as a case study. With all the available human and material resources, the question is asked. What has gone wrong with Nigeria? The topics on this issue have been discussed strictly from the humanistic perspective. They cover the patterns of development, dating from the ancient civilizations, and the roles of logic, the arts, religion, history, archaeology, languages, mass communication and music in aiding and sustaining national growth. Such a curriculum provides the student the opportunity of identifying the importance and relevance of the humanities in any aspect of human development. The course in Humanities is offered to all students who are registered for all degree programmes in the University with the exception of students in the Faculty of Arts.
