  1. Why are the following programmes not offered: Accountancy, Economics, Political Science, Business Admin., Sociology and Library Science?

    We cannot start all programmes at the time. Moreover, the present collection of available programmes was informed by a market survey which revealed the areas of lack/insufficient professional hands in the society.

  2. Explain what Criminology and Security Studies and, Peace and Conflict Resolution are all about. Are as they in any way similar to Law?

    Criminology and Security Studies is a programme that is very relevant to the activities of Security agents. While Peace and Conflict Resolution is a programme relevant to the present day needs as per resolving conflicts. In Nigeria there is a commission set up for this purpose. For the three programmes there are common courses offered.
