Department of Biological Sciences

Courses that train students to appreciate life and the structure of living things are mounted in the Department of Biological Sciences of Federal University Lokoja; as it is obtainable in any other conventional University. Biology, Botany, and Zoology are adequately taught, each as a body of knowledge and/or application of the knowledge for enhancement of man’s economy and survival. The Department has qualified and experienced lecturers employed for the job delivery. Our students are given broad based training during the first two years in the Department. Students in good standing, by the third year, specialize into the three degree awarding programmes of B.Sc Biology, B.Sc Botany, and B.Sc Zoology. The undergraduate programmes are undertaken through course work, seminars, field trips, semester examinations, research and any other modes as may be prescribed by National University Commission.

Mission Statement

To establish and nurture a department that provides excellent teaching, research and community/consultancy services in the field of biology, for the enhancement of local, national and global ecologic-economic wellbeing of humanity.

Vision

A department that is vibrant through good teaching and available research facilities. Also, the department has an amiable working and learning environment and convivial student-staff, student-student, and staff-staff relationships.

Philosophy

The sciences of biology in the Federal University Lokoja (FUL) are aimed at giving intensive education about life, living, structure, and as they relate with providing service and survival. Indeed, through the undergraduate programmes, FUL hopes to identify with the socio-economic and technological dynamics of the Nigerian society. Therefore, as much as possible, the curricula of the undergraduate programmes are synchronised to reflect appropriately the general developmental objectives of Nigeria. The programmes are designed in such a way that our graduates shall either be capable of self-employment or be relevant to technological and industrial establishments. The practical components of the programmes are of paramount importance in order that the philosophy, vision, mission and objectives of the undergraduate programmes in FUL shall be fulfilled.
