Agriculture has always been the epicentre of human knowledge and existence being the first traditional art of livelihood from which food, housing and clothing were obtained. Since the beginning of civilization, the field of Agriculture has remained relevant and naturally, the most important in the modern societies. Agricultural courses are arguably the most highly multidisciplinary requiring knowledge from both natural and social sciences in areas such as biology, chemistry, economics, environmental sciences, business and management. All the courses in agriculture focus on preparing students for work at private, local, national and international levels where topics such as sustainability on a global scale and global food systems are taught with specializations and technical skills in crop farming, animal farming, soil resources and environmental management; fish farming and aquaculture practices; raising and domestication of indigenous/exotic wild trees/wildlife, agricultural economics, business, administration and rural sociology. All these courses and trainings serve as complements making up the Bachelor of Agriculture degrees in five programmes, Bachelor of Fisheries and Aquaculture Management as well as Bachelor of Forestry and Wildlife Management viz:
