Studying at the Department of Agriculture for Social Change

With the new realities of climate change and its impacts on agriculture, two programmes have been carefully developed around the principles of climate-smart agriculture (CSA). The curricula have been uniquely tailored to meet the standards of CSA and provide diverse opportunities to explore international and local agriculture in the fields of agricultural research in plant, Irrigation, post-harvest and pest management. The department has a philosophy of providing quality training which blends theory with practice to prepare students to face real world. Therefore, the programmes are so structured to ensure our graduates acquire adequate skills and practical experience to make them ready for the job market. We are training agricultural scientists who are imbued with entrepreneurial skills for the development of their community.

The Department of Agriculture for Social change offers two programmes of study:

  1. BSc. Degree in Agriculture for Social Change (a four-year programme)
  2.  Diploma in Agriculture for Social Change (a two-year programme

Computer Science Department

 The department of Computer Science currently has two accredited programs, namely, Diploma in Computer Science and B.Sc. Computer Science.

Program Philosophy:

The growing development in information and communication technologies such as internet banking, e-commerce and online shopping have had significant impact on society and have transformed the way modern business is conducted. The effect is an increasing real demand for computer scientists, software engineers and programers who have a thorough and clear understanding of the underlying principles of managing business and people.


The programs in Computer Science prepare students for both the technical side of computing and for careers in management related to Information Technology. The programs offer students a detailed understanding of the underlying principles of both computer science and information technology, and exposes them to how these principles work in real business world. The question that accompanies the students is how to give solutions to the social problems in their society. Training in computer science department just like all other programs in ReCAS is competence based. Therefore, attention is paid to both academic and professional excellence.

Basic Education Department

Basic Education department runs its programmes (B.Ed. in Basic Education and Dip. in Basic Education) based on the principle that teacher professionalism stems from sound religious and moral values, commitment to social justice and inclusion and good balance of skill competences and theoretical understanding of the basic education curriculum. Hence, it seeks to produce competent and sound pre-service and in-service professionals who are committed to working with young children of diverse backgrounds. The goal of the programme is to prepare knowledgeable, professionally competent and ethical conscious teachers who can contribute effectively to the on-going national agenda of promoting quality education.

The Basic Education Programmes of ReCAS are in line with national demand for quality teachers to drive its on-going educational quality improvement programme. The programmes are aimed at not only filling this huge gap in the preparation of teachers for the basic schools in Ghana, but also contribute to the current equity and parity challenges. The location of ReCAS in rural Kansoe setting of the Upper East Region is intended to condition its products to appreciate rural conditions and challenges as they live with and learn within that setting.

Blending the typical Education Programmes with those of Business and Career Development Center the young teachers are prepared to be customer-oriented (Pupil-oriented).
