Brief Information about GSS

The Centre for General Studies and Communication Skills offer programmes of study which are aimed at stimulating and broadening the student’s awareness and knowledge in relevant fields outside his/her immediate area of specialization.

In this way, the student is brought to understand more closely the significance of the linguistic, culture, social, historical, physical, scientific and technological environment in which he exists.

The courses offered are made to span a vast area and variety of knowledge: Nigerian historical, political and sociological situation; the pure sciences; critical, analytical and logical reasoning; computer literacy and applications.

Furthermore, there is an in-depth focus on the use of the English Language, its role as a second language used for study in Nigerian higher institutions of learning and development of effective communication skills in the language.

With this rich academic background, a graduate of the University of Calabar is made to achieve the wider educational objectives of the Nigerian University System.
