Abstract: This is a study of the enrolment pattern into secretarial programmes in tertiary institutions in Edo State of Nigeria. This is against the backdrop that secretarial studies is seen by most people as a gender bias. However, recent developments in the curriculum offer a new impetus for both male and female to embrace it especially in view of the prevailing graduate unemployment situation and general economic downturn in Nigeria. Competent secretarial graduates are sure to secure gainful employment or become entrepreneurs. The study was conducted across two out of the three levels of tertiary institutions that offer secretarial studies programmes, namely, university and college of education. Polytechnic was not included. The findings revealed that the enrolment into secretarial studies programmes was generally low even though it s steady. Whereas female enrolment dominated the trend but subjected to statistical analysis it showed no significant difference between male and female. The trend analysis also indicated that enrolment into secretarial studies programmes between universities and college of education was not significantly different. Based on this it was concluded that the enrolment trend showed a high level of consistency and on the basis of this, the following recommendations were made: the enrolment trend into secretarial studies programmes in tertiary institutions in Edo State should be sustained; more male students should be encouraged to enroll into secretarial studies programme.
