Animal Biodiversity and environmental Sciences

Our Research work is based on the study of Soil fauna, focusing on the one hand on the biology of micro-organisms (protozoa, bacteria and viruses) of the digestive tract of Annelida Oligochaeta (earthworms) and Amphibians that contribute significantly to soil organic matter mineralization, pollutant and toxin conversion (composting). This research work is focusing on the other hand, on ecological aspect trough the impact this fauna on the physico-chemical parameters of the soil and the improvement of his quality.

MISSION STATEMENT

In view of current trends and developments in historical scholarship, the Department seeks to teach the history of world civilizations. Its centre piece is African history wherein Cameroon history is emphasized. The programme intends to blend pedagogic training with overt attention to the acquisition of universal knowledge in historical sciences.

 

GENERAL VISION OF THE DEPARTMENT

Produce well-trained and competitive teachers of history for secondary schools and colleges, who are also competent in historical research and production.

 

CORSE DESCRIPTION

  1. To give the students a thorough understanding of the nature and purposes of historical knowledge.
  2. To impart a sound knowledge of the philosophical basis of the structure, roles and functioning of World History.
  3. To equip the students with analytical skills and arguments in order to enable them appreciate historical problems.
  4. To provide the students with the necessary ample background skills for postgraduate work in History and related fields.
  5. To seek and encourage joint research and teaching exchange programmes with other institutions/universities.
  6. To provide students with a working knowledge in such related disciplines like archaeology, anthropology, etc which are necessary for the proper functioning of a historian.
  7. To organize routine seminars, inaugural lectures and colloquiums at national and international levels.
  8. Train teachers to instruct in secondary schools and colleges.
  9. To elicit patriotism and instill a sense of re-ennoblement.

 

 

 

CAREER PROSPECTS

History as a discipline provides a sound basis for a number of varied professions and career possibilities. Upon completion of the programme, the student will have good employment opportunities in Teaching and research; administration (ENAM); Diplomacy (IRIC); Military (EMIA); Police (ENSP Yaoundé); Archivists; Researchers and Museum Managers; Librarians, mass Communicators, etc.

 

SKILLS TO BE ACQUIRED

The programme seeks to produce well rounded historians who are:

  • Teachers and Researchers—scholars competitive in global employment market
  • Well equipped to serve in the international bureaucracies of the U.N. systems and the ever-expanding network of global NGOs.
  • Flexible enough to adjust their career plans, if necessary in mid-career, to take full advantage of new employment opportunities.
  • Well rounded and disciplined citizens able to engage in and promote life-long learning within a democratic ethos.
  • Patriotism and pedagogic output.

 

 

 

Overview for the programme

The Higher Teacher Training College was established to meet the urgent academic demands for teachers of secondary and high schools in Cameroon. After over five decades, it has now become essential to review the programmes of the institution to ensure that it responds to the training needs of trainers. So with the high degree of scolarisation today in Cameroon, it is now essential that holders of the Teachers Certificate should be backed up by a huge knowledge base from the first degree component so as to make our children in the secondary schools more performant than in the past. In this respect therefore, a number of strategies could be used to provide this added advantage. Furthermore, this programme is intended to fall in line with government’s new policy for orientation of the higher education system in favour professional training and professionalization of degree programmes.

 

The educational system is today taking advantage of the long standing and well tested BMD programme which has now been adopted by countries all over the world. As the Higher Teacher Training College was governments own creation to train teachers for our Secondary and Higher Schools, we should pay tribute to the state for a job well done. If the BMD were to be embraced in the spirit it should be, then the task ahead will be easy to handle. For the core courses, we have harmonised the credit values have been placed as a level of 4 credits per course while the pedagogical courses have been pegged at 3 credits each. For the common courses, the credit value allocated is 2 credits per course. In designing the courses, the pedagogic approach was to give introductory courses in level I, principles in Level II and applied in level III. For instance, Biostatistics is inserted as Introduction to Biostatistics in level I, Principles of Biostatistics in level II and Applied Biostatistics in level III.

 

The programme is structured into three in the ratio of 65 (core biology courses): 25 (professional courses): 10 (common courses-languages and civics and ethics). This structure is uniform for the first four semester of the first cycle degree programme and undergoes a slight modification in the fifth and sixth semester during which more emphasis is placed on the professional courses. Teaching Practice has been slated for every 15th September to 15th October for Level II students (Teaching Practice: Observation) and Level III students (Teaching Practice: Application). However, all the grading for teaching practice whether it is observation or application will be earmarked for the fifth semester of the programme. The research project course introduced relates to practical experience and investigation in a specific area of biology. This research project will be sanctioned by a duly written project document which will be graded accordingly.

 

As concerns the second cycle, the initial three semesters will respect the ratio of 75% for core courses and 25 % for professional courses. There will be no common courses in the second cycle. A hundred percent of the courses in the last semester of the second cycle will be dedicated to the professional courses (Teaching practice- 20 credits and dissertation-10 credits). Just like the first cycle, Teaching Practice has been slated for every 15th September to 15th October for Level IV students (Teaching Practice: Observation) and Level V students (Teaching Practice: Application). However, all the grading for teaching practice whether it is observation or application will be earmarked for the last semester of the programme.

This distribution aims at improving the academic knowledge component. This with a view to enhancing further academic access into post graduate studies since the essential details or sound foundations have been taken care of. The Bachelor’s Degree in Education (B.Ed) or Curriculum Studies and Teaching (CST) based on the above ratios provide a sound and satisfactory knowledge the basis for which the candidate can teach both at the secondary and higher school levels. This is a succinct way of providing both academic and professional components in one package thereby increasing the candidates’ opportunity to take on graduate work in the academic discipline later on.
