Department of Military History
The Department of Military History (MLH) Nigerian Army University Biu, is the first and only of its kind in Nigeria, being the only Department of History in the country to offer a specified Bachelor of Arts degree in Military History. While other institutions offer Military or Strategic Studies in the post-graduate level, NAUB MLH has built a rich and robust curriculum for undergraduate students, which provides a background and training in War Studies, Histories of various world militaries and Diplomacy. The Department also adds into its curriculum the various genres of History, thereby giving the students both a general and specialized understanding of the study of History.
The Department, although new, has incorporated a special course, studies on Biu and her neighbours, comprising groups in Southern Borno, Southern Yobe, Northern Adamawa and Gombe. This special course affords the Department the opportunity to take an in-depth study on the history, culture and geography of the host area, thereby providing an aspect of knowledge gathering as community service by the University to these host communities.
