Welcome to Faculty of Arts
I warmly welcome you to the Faculty of Arts, the intellectual lighthouse of the University of Lagos and one of the leading faculties of Arts in Africa.
What is now known as the Faculty of Arts, University of Lagos started in 1964 as the School of Humanities. However, in 1975, it was merged with the then School of African and Asian Studies and re-designated Faculty of Arts. Presently, this Faculty comprises six Departments: Linguistics, African and Asian Studies, Creative Arts, English, History and Strategic Studies, European Languages, and Philosophy. Besides the award of graduate and post graduate degrees in disciplines in these Departments, the Faculty, in 2013, introduced a Bachelor of Arts (B. A.) Chinese programme in the Department of Linguistics, African and Asian Studies. ..
