About Us

The Faculty of Arts and Islamic Studies is today the oldest and one of the largest faculties in Bayero University. The Faculty, now comprising the Departments of Arabic, Islamic Studies, English and French, History and Nigerian Languages and Linguistics, prides itself as the foundation of the University. Its philosophy was, and still is, the preservation, development and propagation of the culture, language, history and religion of its immediate environment of Northern Nigeria, Nigeria, Africa, and the whole of human society. One can say, without any reservations, that the Faculty, which is presently situated at the new campus, has pioneered and indeed fostered the development of the university in its entirety.
