- At its 12th meeting held n Wednesday, 19th July, 1978, Senate considered and approved Paper No. SP 77-78/060 titled "The General Regulations for Graduate Studies". This paved the way for the take-off of graduate training in the 1978/90 academic year. The then School of Humanities and Biological Sciences gave admission to candidates in the Programs of M.A Comparative Literature and M.Sc. Plant Physiology and Fisheries Biology.
Initially, the graduate programs were administered by the School (now Faculties) and the Registry. In October 1982, the School of Graduate Studies was formerly established with Prof. E.J. Alagoa as the first Dean, and it became necessary to streamline the procedures for the operation of graduate programs. The General Regulations approved by Senate required each Faculty to setup Departmental Graduate Studies Committees t make recommendations regarding all matters concerning graduate programs to its Faculty Board. Senate also Established the "Higher Degrees Committee" (a Committee of the School of Graduate Studies) to "advise Senate on all matters relating to higher degrees". Alumni Stories
