Faculty of Arts


On behalf of the entire staff and students of the Department of History and International Studies, Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria, I welcome everyone to this amiable Department where a harmonious staff student relationship produces a dynamic and interesting environment with insatiable research interest to better the lot of the institution and society at large.

At the inception of the University, the importance of the historical discipline was a driving force to ensure its addition to the maiden concept. The Department remains at the forefront in enlisting the institution and nation as flag-bearers in leadership and development initiatives. Such laudable achievements were attained through the provision of high standard educational materials, seminars, and original essays with cross cutting-edge research to produce skilled and articulate professionals.

It is very interesting to note that an academic discipline in History and International Studies produces graduates of a high academic standard, with broad exposure, articulate enough to handle jobs in Public Relations, Archaeology, External Affairs, Administration, Museum Management, Curation and the Media. Interestingly enough, historians also excel in entrepreneurial activities due to the dynamic nature of the discipline.

Once again, I welcome you to this illustrious Department, a pillar in nation building and a major resource at the Faculty of Arts, Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria.

Thank You.

Adu, Funmilayo Modupe (Ph.D.)
