The School of Languages

About the School

The School of Secondary Education (Language Programmes) is one of the Seven (7) Academic Schools approved by National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) in Nigeria, which fashioned its programmes along the College philosophy. From inception, the School of Secondary Education (Language Programmes) was formerly a departmental component of the School of Arts and Social Sciences that consisted of the Department of Christian Religious Studies, Islamic Studies, Social Studies, Nigerian Languages and English Language. However, due to the reorganization by National Commission for Colleges of Education in Nigeria, the School got its autonomy in the year 1993 and became a full fledged School. It started with two Departments viz English and Yoruba Departments. Arabic Language Department was pulled out of Islamic studies Department. Also in the year 1993, Hausa and Igbo Departments were approved by National Commission for Colleges of Education in Nigeria and French Language Department was established in the year 1998. The School currently has five functional Departments namely Arabic, English, French, Hausa and Yoruba Language. Owing to non-availability of students in Igbo Language Department, the Department has been temporarily closed down. Dr. (Mrs.) O. O. Owoeye was the pioneer Dean, she served between 1994-1998. Others who had served as Dean includes Mr. W. O. Fatokun (1998 - 2001), Mr. Ndudim Chiegonu (2001 - 2005), Mr. F. R. Buari (2005 - 2009), Mr. O. A. Idowu (2009 - 2014), Mrs. M. A. Abimbola (2014 – 2016), Mr. O. W. Salaam (2016 – 2018) while Mrs. E. O. Bolarinwa is the incumbent Dean, as at the time of this compilation.
