The Faculty Education and Community Studies evolved from two existing departments namely the Department of Agricultural Education and Extension; established in 1967 with support from USAID to train Diploma agriculture teachers for secondary schools and the department of Home Economics established in 1969 to offer Diploma programmes to female students. In 1987 the two departments were upgraded and began admitting degree students, and became the pioneer constituent departments then Faculty of Education and Human Resources. In 1989, the department of Curriculum and Instruction was established to offer the Bachelor of Education Science Programmes. Later, the Departments of Educational Psychology, Educational Foundations and Educational Administration, Planning and Management was established as service departments to offer foundational courses to students of the faculty. Since then, the faculty has expanded in Academic staff, Programmes and Student enrolment. Currently, the faculty has the following four departments: Agricultural Education and Extension, Applied Community and Development Studies, Psychology, Counseling and Educational Foundations and Curriculum, Instruction and Educational Management.
