DEPARTMENT OF FINE AND APPLIED ARTS

 

Brief History of the Department

The Department of Fine and Applied Arts is one of the oldest departments in the College.  It took off as Department of Fine Arts at the inception of the College in 1964 and by October, 1979, it became a double major department thereby addressed as Department of Fine and Applied Arts.

All the courses were fully accredited at the last NUC accreditation exercise.

 

General Philosophy

There is a conscious attempt to encourage students to develop the potentialities of there own individual creativity, inculcate an awareness of the richness of our cultural heritage as well as the global dimensions of earth.  This will be achieve through instructions in practical skills in the studies, exploration of indigenous creative techniques, lectures, seminars and  tutorials in the historical dimension of arts.
