It is with great delight that I welcome you to the Department of Biological sciences domiciled in the College of Science and Technology (CST). The Department has two programmes, namely, 

  • Biology
  • Microbiology

Each of the programmes has articulated its specific mission, vision and objectives in line with the vision and mission of the University. All the programmes were designed with a view to producing job-ready graduates in the life sciences appropriate IT skills and capacity for independent thinking, creativity and resourcefulness. The curricula of the programmes are unique, robust, current and comparable to the best in the world. They are designed not only to meet and surpass the basic academic standards prescribed by regulatory authorities in Nigeria but also to make our students spiritually buoyant, intellectually resourceful and physically fit to emerge as leaders in their chosen disciplines and solution providers in areas of their future endeavors.    

We have modern ICT-driven and interactive teaching/learning facilities, state-of-the-art laboratories and workshops, and a rare crop of eminent scholars, committed and highly motivated faculty and staff. These, coupled with the unique serene and green environment of Covenant University, certainly makes learning in the department a pleasurable experience.

This Academic Handbook contains details of prescribed courses and other specific requirements for all programmes offered in the department at the undergraduate level. It is intended to provide precise information to students, parents and everyone interested in the academic programmes of the Department.
