Dr. Stella KPOLUGBO Dean, Faculty of Humanities


The Faculty of Humanities started operations on the 1st of February 2017.The Federal government of Nigeria has admitted that without higher education, the vision 20-2020 will be a mirage. The faculty, just like the university, is fully persuaded that the light of knowledge illuminates the mind, liberates the man and upgrades human qualities, faculties and professional skills that result in discernible impact on all areas of human endeavours. The Faculty is poised for awarding undergraduate degrees in Humanities and preparing students in Digital Humanities.

The Faculty of Humanities is one of the three pioneer Faculties in Anchor University, Lagos, after the initial approval by the NUC in November 2016. The faculty currently offers undergraduate degree programmes in the following fields:

  • B.A. (Hons.) Christian Religious Studies
  • B.A. (Hons.) English and Literary Studies
  • B.A. (Hons.) History and Diplomatic Studies
  • B.A. (Hons) French
The faculty started with a staff strength of five (5): three (3) academic staff and two (2) administrative staff). The number has risen to twelve (12) academic staff and two (2) administrative staff. So, far, the faculty has had its programmes running smoothly. The academic staff at the faculty has continued to attend conference, workshop and seminars within and outside Nigeria to ensure they are abreast of the quality needed to run the programmes.
