    • ABOUT MOCPED SCHOOL OF ARTS AND SOCIAL SCIENCES

      The School of Arts and Social Studies, as it was then known, was one of the Schools created at the inception of the College in 1994. It initially comprised of four departments namely Cultural and Creative Arts, Islamic Studies, Christian Religious Studies and Social Studies.

      Brief History of the School of Arts and Social Sciences

      The School of Arts and Social Studies, as it was then known, was one of the Schools created at the inception of the College in 1994. It initially comprised of four departments namely Cultural and Creative Arts, Islamic Studies, Christian Religious Studies and Social Studies. In 2003 however, the Social Studies department was moved away and along with the newly floated Economics programme formed the School of Social Sciences to which the Political Science department was added in 2004. The name School of Arts and Social Studies was subsequently changed to the School of Arts to reflect these changes in composition of the school. In 2007 however, the two Schools, Arts and Social Sciences, were merged to form a new school, the School of Arts and Social Sciences.

      Since its establishment, the School has been a pioneer in the College in terms of innovative activities and overall performance. It has also consistently been the most populated School sometimes having over 50% of the Colleges’ entire student population.

      1. Philosophy and Goals of the Arts and Social Sciences Programme

      Philosophy

      Man has complex nature, and, the increasingly more complex society in which he lives and, his relationship with the metaphysical world (expressed in myths and religions) have been interesting subjects for investigation by scholars. Using various instruments (qualitative and quantitative, or a combination of both), the “Arts ands Social Sciences” disciplines have sought to answer the basic questions concerning man, his society and his relationship with the metaphysical world. The NCE “Arts and Social Sciences” programmes seek to draw the teacher and his student into a mutual dialogue about their collective realities.

      Goals

      The goals of Arts and Social Sciences programmes include the following: -

      1. to produce NCE teachers of Arts and Social Sciences Subjects who are capable of contributing meaningfully to the production of teachers of those subjects in the Primary and Junior Secondary School classes in Nigeria;
      2. to help the students acquire the basic knowledge and values needed to enhance the quality of their lives and the life of the nation;
      3. to help the students acquire the spirit of self-reliance, positive self-image and balanced personality;
      4. to prepare students for life-long education.
