Zoology & Environmental Biology



The combined Senate of the University of Nigeria and the Technical Committee from the Michigan State University approved the establishment of the Department of Zoology in 1961, following a presentation by a team from the Michigan State University.  By the approval of the Senate of the University in March 2011, the name of the Department was changed from “Zoology” to “Zoology and Environmental Biology”.
