Program Description Details

The department has discovered a big gap yet to be filled in the training of professionals with manifest high moral credentials in addition to career excellence. The Nigerian and African political and administrative landscape stands to gain from the training of people who are prepared to excel by providing leadership by example, guided by the fear of God. Career opportunities open to trained political scientists, diplomats and administrators are many and include careers in diplomatic services; employment in the civil service at any of the three tiers of government- Federal, state or local; and as university lecturers and teachers in the secondary schools, polytechnics and colleges of education.
