- Message from the HOD:
You are warmly welcome to the Department of Political Science and International Relations. The Department runs two programmes namely – Political Science and International Relations – leading to the award of B.Sc (Hons) Degree (in both programmes).
The Department was established in September 2012. Before this time, the two programmes in the Department were under the Department of Social Sciences. The Department graduated its first set in 2014.
The Department is actively involved in realising the mission of this great citadel of learning as it equips its students with the cutting-edge knowledge base that is specifically designed to transform them into new generation of leaders and reformers. Through the University’s customised life-applicable training system anchored on agrarian revolution and the Department’s creative and qualitative knowledge base, the graduates of the Department are equipped to facilitate the rebuilding of the desolation of many generations both in Nigeria and beyond. The task is made easier with the quality of faculty in the Department, the active support of the Vice Chancellor and the generosity of the Chancellor. Wouldn’t you rather be part of this educational revolution at the Department of Political Science and International Relations, Landmark University? Join us. Welcome!
