The Department offers courses which meet the demands of the new curriculum at the pre-tertiary levels. The courses are framed in three main areas; The environment (comprises geography related courses), Governance, Politics and Stability, which looks at political development of Ghana, the history and culture of Ghana, and the social and economic development.
