Curriculum Development in the Department of Geography

The early curriculum (1961-1964) of the department was basic, with the entire first year spent on General Studies courses and electives (University of Nigeria, 1963). Only in the second year were geography courses introduced, and these were limited to three: Elements of geography, Map work, and Fieldwork.  The systematic physical and human geography courses began in the third year. Similarly, four regional geography courses were made compulsory.  A notable compulsory fourth years course was political geography.

Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering
The world’s population is expected to grow from 6 billion today to at least 8 billion by the year 2025. And most of this growth will take place in the developing world including Africa. It is therefore clear that expanding agricultural production in a sustainable manner will be crucial in responding to these challenges.
Agricultural Economics


Agricultural Economics applies the analytical models of economics to agricultural problems.  It applies the principles of choice in the use of scarce resources such as land, labour capital and management in farming and allied activities.  It seeks to offer practicable solutions in using scarce resources of the farmers for maximization of income.

Agricultural Extension
History of the Department
The programme in Agricultural Extension in the University of Nigeria was initiated at the instance of UNICEF in 1965, when the agency entered into an agreement with the University to support the programme for a period of five years. This was done because it was realised that the programmes of the Faculty of Agriculture were defective without a programme in Agricultural Extension.

This website serves to provide an overview of our activities at UNN. The University of Nigeria was founded in 1960 by Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, an African legend, who was also Nigeria’s first president. The founding of the university in 1960 - the same year Nigeria gained political independence - was informed by the need to produce the highly skilled men and women that will fulfill the manpower needs of the newly independent Nigerian state. This unique circumstance of our birth as an institution informed the choice of our motto – to restore the dignity of man.
