DEPARTMENT OF SCIENCE EDUCATION
Welcome to the Department of Science Education

 

 PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

 

The science Education Department is primarily concern with the production of component and dedicated teachers in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Integrated Science, Mathematics, Computer and Environmental Science. Towards this end, the programme is designed to provide;

a.         A sound academic preparation in the science discipline and mathematics.

b.         A theoretical understanding and practical; skill in the development implementation and evaluation of secondary school science and mathematics curriculum which meet both the needs of the learner, society and changing times.

                     Every student in the programme is expected to take core course in education, course in one of optional science discipline or mathematics and courses in science methods. It is expected that on successful completion of the degree programme, a graduate of the unit would have been sufficiently equipped to:

  1. Tech one of the science subject, mathematics or integrated science in the secondary school.
  2. Develop challenging, age- appropriate science and or mathematics curriculum relevant to the needs of the students and society at large.
  3. Use various forms of traditional and alternative assessment techniques to monitor, enhance and evaluate student learning.
  4. Perform administrative and supervisory duties within the country’s education system with particular reference to his/ her teaching subject.
  5. Continue advance studies in science education or in his subject of specialization.

 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENT

1.         A candidate seeking admission to the Department of Science Education must meet one or more of the following university general requirement. That is, five GCE (ordinary) level or W.A.S.C. or Grade II Teachers Certificate subjects passed at credit level in not more two sittings.

2.         JME candidates should posses at least two credits and pass in any three of the following ‘O’ level subjects: Agricultural Science, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. For environmental science, Geography may be one of the four subjects considered.

3.         For direct entry Candidate Five credits at GCE ‘O’ level or W.A.S.C. or TCII and two passes at principal level in HSC or GCE advanced level.

 

Five Credit and National Diploma in relevant area with a cumulative grade point of not lower than 2.50 (on a 4.0 point scale) or an equivalent qualification OR N.C.E, H.N.D. or a degree in relevant area.

 

Candidates admitted through JAMB entrance examination enroll in a four- year degree program. Those with direct entry start in the second year of the four- year programme.

 

TEACHING PRACTICE

Supervised teaching practice is compulsory before a student can graduate from the department. Students go on teaching practice for twelve weeks in the second semester of the third year.
