Archbishop Duncan Williams with members of the governing council at the meeting
THE DOMINION University College (DUC), founded by Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams of Action Chapel, has announced that 42 persons have so far been admitted as pioneer students for the 2012-2013 academic year.
The first batch of students is expected to take various degree programmes in business studies, theological studies and computer science when the college begins full operation in September.
Archbishop Duncan Williams, who also doubles as the chancellor of the university, disclosed this at the governing council meeting held at the Action Chapel International, Prayer Cathedral, on the Spintex Road.
He said plans are far advanced to affiliate the university with some universities in the US for international recognition.
?I have made some in-roads with some strategic universities in the United States that have agreed to work with us so that they will be affiliates to the Dominion University College so that the students who come to our university get something that is internationally recognized,? he said.
The Archbishop said this was in light of making the university although new, one of the best and outstanding in the country.
The School of Business Studies offers programs leading to the award of Bachelor degrees in Business Administration, Accounting, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Banking and Finance and Public Sector Accounting.
The School of Theological Studies offers Bachelor of Arts degrees in Theology, Missional Leadership and Pastoral Care & Counseling, while the School of Computing Science offers the Computer Science with Management degree.
Out of the admissions, 20 students have been admitted on regular entry with the remaining 22 being admitted as mature students.
The school is accredited by the National Accreditation Board and is affiliated to the University of Cape Coast.
Acting President of the College, Dr. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, who is also the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Action Chapel International, said the lecture halls, library and other facilities such as the computer room have been fully furnished and equipped to meet the needs of the students.
The college later inaugurated a press corps to further develop a closer relationship with journalists and the various media houses in the country.
