Preamble

The department offers courses to prepare candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Agriculture in Agricultural Economics and Extension. Agricultural Economics and Extension has much to do with the business of Farm Management concerns the mating of farm business decision that tend to maximize net income, consistent with the objectives of the farm operator.

Objectives

The department's curriculum tries to satisfy the three domains of curriculum planning, notably, cognitive, effective and psycho-motor domains. Undergraduates of the programme will be initially given basic courses in basic agriculture with specialization later in Agricultural Economics and Extension. This training will equip the students for diverse careers in education and research, banking industry, government and private enterprise.

The student on graduation should be able to:

  1. establish and manage an agro - business.
  2. serve as an adviser in the setting up and running of cooperative organisation.
  3. Advise on a full time or conalumni-events-reunions-other-eventssultancy basis on the management of scarce agricultural resources.
