Welcome to The Department of Integrated Science which started as a course and was introduced into the College Curriculum in 1989. By the 1991/92 academic session, the Unit evolved into a Department with six qualified Lecturers. Between 1992 and 1994, these lecturers went for several training programmes organized jointly by the Federal Ministry of Education and the British Council using the Manual Nigerian Integrated Science Teachers Education Project (NSTEP) with which they were exposed to the acquisition of knowledge and skills in Integrated Science Education and how to effectively pass these to their students in the classroom.
The Department today, provides the core of the students in the School of Sciences with the following subject combinations:
- Integrated Science/Chemistry;
- Integrated Science/Geography;
- Integrated Science/Biology;
- Integrated Science/Computer Science;
- Integrated Science/Mathematics; and
