It is with great delight that I welcome you to the Department of Biochemistry. The Department has articulated its specific mission, vision and objectives in line with the vision and mission of the University. The courses were designed with a view to producing job-ready graduates in the life sciences with appropriate skills and capacity for independent thinking, creativity and resourcefulness. The curricula of the department are unique, robust, current and comparable to the best in the world. They are designed not only to meet and surpass the basic academic standards prescribed by regulatory authorities in Nigeria but also to make our students spiritually buoyant, intellectually resourceful and physically fit to emerge as leaders in their chosen disciplines and solution providers in areas of their future endeavors. We have modern ICT-driven and interactive teaching/learning facilities, state-of-the-art laboratories and workshops, and a rare crop of eminent scholars, committed and highly motivated faculty and staff. These, coupled with the unique serene and green environment of Covenant University, certainly makes learning in the department a pleasurable experience.
