Philosophy

The General Studies Programme is designed to expose students to a variety of knowledge across disciplines.

It is aimed at enabling students appreciate the inter-relationship among disciplines in an integrated world, which is fast becoming one big village.

Advances in science and technology are daily breaking down traditional boundaries in human knowledge and communication.

The computer is also actively making obsolete the compartmentalization of human knowledge. In a small way, General Studies therefore, offer the

potential for bridging the gaps in human knowledge, thereby preparing the students to meet the challenges of the changing world adequately.

Objectives

After exposure to the course, students should be able to:

a) Participate meaningfully in discussions covering a wide spectrum of disciplines.

b) Appreciate and analyse Nigerian/human history and cultures, as well as articulate their relative impact on educational and socio-economic development.

c) State, explain and critically analyse the national objectives and how to achieve them.

d) Acquire through independent research, the skills and information for appreciating the basis and nature/character of human knowledge, values and actions, and to use such knowledge/information in solving problems.

e) Develop critical thinking and imagination to apply Basic Mathematics in solving problems of everyday life.

f) Acquire a proficiency in the use of the English Language for effective communication.

g) Enhance the study of other subjects and to promote professional competence.

h) Use the computer so as to be functional in the contemporary (ICT) world.

CUMULATIVE GRADE POINT AVERAGE (CGPA) CREDIT UNITS

These refer to the weight in terms of units given to a particular course.  For instance EDU 111, History of Education is given a credit weighting of 1 (one and EDU 112 is given 2 (two) units etc.  The credit units may consist of hours of Lecture/Practical/Seminar/Industrial attachment and so on.  

GRADE POINT (GP) This is the point assigned to a percentage score or letter Grade obtained in a given course.  The score is normally a Combination of Assessment and Examination Scores.  These, according to the Minimum Standards are as follows:   

NO PERCENTAGE SCORE 

LETTER  GRADE 

GRADE POINTS 

i 70 - 100 A 5 – Distinction

 ii 60 - 69 B 4 –  Credit

 iii 50 - 59 C 3 – Merit

iv 45 - 49 D 2 – Pass

 v 40 - 44 E 1 –Low  Pass

 vi   0 - 39 F 0 - Fail  

Thus a percentage score of 55 is assigned the letter grade C and Grade Point of 3.  In the same vein, a percentage of 70 is assigned the letter A and the Grade point of 5 Percentage score of 39 and below is assigned the grade F and the Grade point of 0.  

GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA) This is the average of Grade Point earned in the Course taken in a semester.  This is obtained by multiplying the Grade Point obtained in each course by the number of credit units assigned to the course.  The sum of these is then divided by the total number of credit taken in that semester.  

 REGISTRATION FOR COURSE EXAMINATIONS Students should register for a maximum of courses totaling 30 credit hours (including courses to be repeated).  Such courses to be repeated (from the previous session) should be registered first.  Courses in Education are to be listed before the major subjects.  

ATTENDANCE AT CLASSES i. Attendance at all classes designed for given course of study is compulsory.  Any absence from class without the approval of the course lecturer and the Head of Department would be subject to disciplinary action. ii. No student with less than 75% class attendance will be allowed into the Semester Final Examination without the written permission of the Head of Department.  The Head of Department before giving this approval must take into account the students performance standing  up-to-date. iii. A student who comes late to a class without good reason would be sent away by the lecturer of the course.

 INCOMPLETE RESULTS AND PERCENTAGE FOR CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT Students who do not participate in continuous assessment(s) would have INCOMPLETE RESULT in such course, the performance in the examination, notwithstanding.  The score for continuous assessment is 40% and that of the examination is 60%.  

 PETITIONS/GRIEVANCES All students petitions/grievances shall be channeled in writing through the Head of Department to the Dean, School of Education.  Such petition should be deposited with the School Officer, who should provide counselling and assistance to students wishing to write such petition/grievances. (ii)  should  be  treated  with  special  reference  to  the  geo/political  areas  where they  operate.    The  impact  of  the  ideological  blocks  on  the  states  and  welfare  of  their  peoples should  be  emphasized  in  the  light  of  contemporary  global  changes. 

Conclusion

The Department appreciates the College Authority and Heads of servicing Units and departments for their unflinching support and cooperation that

have remained strong factors in the successful coordination of academic activities of the Department.

Thanks.
