Geographic Sciences

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

Students studying geographic sciences can learn about Earth, its landscapes, environments and people. They can also gain an understanding of the connection between people, communities and the natural world. Scholars may also explore the technology used for understanding such connections.

Many programs in Africa take place in a very unusual cultural and physical environment than most students are familiar with in the good old days. Come To Know to adapt to this living conditions is part of fun and the challenge of living there. The challenge is intellectual, emotional and physical.

Masters in Geographic Sciences in Africa 2017. Faculty of Applied Natural Sciences Applied Biology and Biotechnology Introduction The Department of Applied Biology offers postgraduate programmes leading to PGD, M.Sc. and PhD degrees in biological science disciplines. At the moment six areas, namely Pest Management (Entomology) and Plant Physiology, Hydrobiology and Fisheries, Ecology and Environmental Biology, Genetics and Plant Pathology. are covered. Courses in other disciplines will be mounted as manpower becomes available in the specialist areas. Philosophy Science is generally accepted to be the bedrock of technological development which is the main index of national growth and maturity. Thus scientific orientation and knowledge lead to faster development of human resources and improvement of human welfare. Based on these considerations, an important and urgent national need arises to impart a broad knowledge in basic sciences to those with the right aptitude. Only a sound science base can nurture technology for service to society. The social relevance and acceptability of the scientifically trained are self-evident from this standpoint, the promise of self-realization and actualization can serve as incentive for the pursuit of scientific knowledge. All the postgraduate programmes in the Faculty of Applied Natural Sciences in this university are based on the above philosophy. However, the detailed objectives vary according to the individual disciplines. Objectives In applied Biology, the broad objectives are: To provide well-trained biologists in specialist fields to man relevant positions in Research Institutes, Universities and other institutions of higher learning in the country; To development expertise and facilities so...
