She said students would be admitted for masters and doctorate degrees.The courses are Agriculture Economics, Animal Science, Crop Science and Soil Science in the Faculty of Agriculture. The Vice Chancellor, Professor Kayode Soremekun, said the introduction of post-graduate studies was an affirmation of one of the goals he set for himself when he was appointed to head the school two years ago. He explained that the programme was designed to shred the myth behind postgraduate programmes run by other Nigerian universities.“We intend to take the sting out of the postgraduate school,” Soremekun said. A Fulbright scholar, Soremekun is also a Rockefeller and Ford Foundation fellow.“I owe a lot to the energy and drive of the last dean of the postgraduate school, Rasaki Ojo Bakare. Now, since we have opened our doors to postgraduate students, we will ensure that they receive the best teaching and research support to excel,” Soremekun said.
