Welcome to the Department of Educational Studies web page. The Department of Educational Studies in its present form was established in 1988 to offer degree programmes using open and distance learning (ODL) methods. Its antecedents, however, date back to 1967 when the correspondence course unit (CCU) was established as a Department in the then Institute of Adult Studies to provide learning by correspondence.

The mission of the Department is to extend University educational and training opportunities to the wider population of Kenya. Since its establishment, the Department has faithfully carried out this mandate and maintained a leadership position in providing quality education to Kenyans at their doorsteps by ODL methods.

Courses offered include Bachelor of Education (Arts), Bachelor of Education (Science), Postgraduate Diploma in Education, Masters in Distance Education, Doctor of Philosophy in Distance Education. Once again feel welcome to the Department.

Thank you.


Head of Department
