The Mission of Covenant University is to liberate mankind through the provision of the relevant university education for the society, that is by training students to become productive and resourceful people and agents of change.  Similarly, the University aims at advancing the mental dignity of the human race, particularly Africans, who have largely lost their mental bravery to colonial entanglements. The Department therefore aligns itself with this Mission and aims at equipping men and women, its students, to face the challenges of life.
