Salem University gets NUC approval to establish a Postgraduate School
Salem University Lokoja has been granted approval by the National Universities Commission to establish a Postgraduate school.
The postgraduate school will initially run Postgraduate diploma, MSc and MBA in Business Administration and MSc in Microbiology. Furthermore, the NUC has approved more undergraduate programmes for Salem University. The new undergraduate programmes are BSc. Mass communication, BSc. Sociology B.A English and B.A History and Diplomatic Studies. Both the Postgraduate school and the new undergraduate academic programmes are to commence in the 2016/2017 session.
The approval of the new academic programmes is sequel to the resource verification exercise earlier conducted by panels of experts from the NUC. The said panel of experts confirmed the availability of adequate resources, both infrastructural and human, for Salem University to embark on the new academic horizon.
With this, Salem University is providing more course options to potential undergraduates whose search for placement into the university to study courses of their choice has become elusive. Also the post graduate programmes will provide an avenue for fresh graduates and those in employment to further gain top- notch skills and knowledge which will lead to gaining mastery of their jobs.
In line with the academic vision and mission of Salem University to produce graduates that are intellectually sound, mentally alert and spiritually alive and who would be propellers of positive change and innovators in the society, Salem University is set to further contribute its quota to the social, cultural and economic transformation of the country in particular and the world at large.
Similarly, the National Universities Commission has approved the commencement of part time degree programmes in Accounting, Business Administration and Computer Science. Consequently, the University officially commenced lectures in the different programmes.
It will be recalled that Salem University was among the few private universities recently granted full operating licence by the National Universities Commission (NUC). It is reputed to be one of the fastest growing universities in Nigeria.
