About The Awarding Institution
Babcock University is a private University that actually began on September 17, 1959 as Adventist College of West Africa (ACWA). Established by the Seventh-day Adventist Church as a senior college for training church workers from the West African sub-region, ACWA opened its doors with only seven ministerial students.
By 1966, when it graduated the first set of Bachelor of Arts degree holders in its own name, enrollment included students taking Business Administration as potential accountants within and outside the Church; and two-year Pre-Nursing students in preparation to pursue a nursing career at the Church’s School of Nursing at Ile-Ife, Osun State.
History was made in 1975 when ACWA became the first Institution in Nigeria to sign and operate an affiliation agreement with Andrews University, Berrien Springs, Michigan, USA.
This relationship enabled it to award Bachelor of Arts degrees from Andrews University in Biology, Business Administration, History, Religion and Secretarial Studies. Being a pioneer private University in Nigeria since 1999, Babcock has continued this legacy of upholding a cutting-edge excellence in education.
Babcock now has a Postgraduate School which took off in the third quarter of 2010 and a medical school which took off in January 2012.
Similarly, a deliberate expansion policy of its programmes to meet current market demands and maximum service delivery has resulted in departmental upgrades and addition of new programmes.
The latest additions are the Music & Creative and Educational Foundations departments to School of Education & Humanities.
