Key facts:

  • The Personnel Psychology programme is offered at the University Of Ibadan.
  • One remarkable aspect of the growth and development of the Department is the discernable shifts and changes in its orientation, programmes and modus operandi. Between 1949 and 1965 the Department focused on what could be characterized as real extra-mural work.
  • In this direction, the Department organized in different locations throughout the country short-term programmes that consisted of lectures seminars and discussion classes around topics of academic and cultural interests. The programmes were aimed at raising the peoples’ culture and broadening the minds of those who had some access to western education.
