B.Sc. (Ed) Physics Education
The B.Sc. (Ed.) Physics programme is structured to run for a minimum of four years and maximum of eight years for students starting at 100 level or minimum of three years and maximum of six years for students starting at 200 levels. Students will undergo a six week (6) practical teaching period at 300 and 400 levels.
The Philosophy for B.Sc. (Ed.) Physics aims at a complete development of the individual student teachers irrespective of time and physical distance (space) to make them effective Physics teachers, and high caliber professionals in Science Education. The student shall be provided with functional, flexible learning and cost-effectiveness which will make the student to have quality and life-long knowledge in Physics education
To provide highly accessible, flexible and enhanced quality education leading to the award of a bachelor’s degree anchored by social justice, equity, equality and national cohesion through a comprehensive reach that transcends all barriers.
To provide opportunities for the development of scientific competences and creative minds that would equip learners with lifelong values and also produce professional Physics teachers and leaders through Open and Distance Learning.
