Currently, the department has four undergraduate academic programmes namely:

  • Economics Education

Brief History

The Department of Social Science Education first emerged as a sub-department (carved out of the Department of Science Education) on November 27th 2007 during the tenure of Venerable Professor Chinedu Ositadinma Nebo of the Vice Chancellor of University of Nigeria, Nsukka.  However, on the 28th of January 2008, it became a full-fledged Department of Social Science Education sequel to Senate official approval.  This development was based on the recommendations of the National Universities Commission (NUC) Accreditation reports (2005 and 2007) which favoured the establishment of a separate department of Social Science Education from Science Education Department.
