Best Courses To Study In Nigerian Universities (pictures)

 1. Law.

What is law?

It may seem obvious, but what is law? Law, or legal studies, comes into contact with almost every area of human life, touching upon issues relating to business, economics, politics, the environment, human rights, international relations and trade. It is telling that the first academic degrees developed were all related to law. As a law student, you can expect to learn how to tackle some of the most problematic – indeed, often seemingly irresolvable – conflicts and issues in modern society and morality. In providing a framework through which to examine and understand different societies and cultures, law degrees are a useful way to prepare not only for specific legal careers, but for a broad range of professional roles – and indeed, for life in general.

 2. Medicine and medical science.

Medical education is also the subject-didactic academic field of educating medical doctors at all levels, including entry-level, post-graduate, and continuing medical education.

 4. English and literally studies



What does an English degree cover?

A degree in English language and literature is designed to get you reading books, analyzing theories, critiquing prose and verse, and taking a more critical look at the signs and words surrounding us every day. The aim is to get students thinking creatively and analytically about the English language; this differs from other modern language degrees as it is intended for students already proficient in written and spoken English. An English degree can focus equally on the literature and language sides, while others specialize in one or the other; this will usually be clear from the course title.

A course with a focus on English literature typically allows students to study literary texts from throughout history. Often you’ll start with modules covering a diverse range of literature from different periods; for instance, you could be reading Shakespeare one week and Virginia Woolf the next. Your reading will require you to study and analyze passages, relating texts to their cultural, social, historical and political contexts.

An English language-focused degree will train students to analyze the workings of the English language outside of literature, including language-based communication in all kinds of forms and contexts. This could include analysis of casual spoken conversation, text speak, advertising methods or the uses of language in specialized legal and medical discourse.

 5. Political science.

Political science majors will examine the behaviors of world leaders and explore issues of power, conflict and justice. Students will study the development, political system, and function of governments in an attempt to ascertain the best practices for integration into new ideas and future proposals.

With a strong foundation in the liberal arts, political science majors are well suited for a variety of careers. Occupational opportunities include government administration, politics and campaigns, public policy, non-profit organizations, international relations, business and journalism. Students are also prepared to pursue graduate programs in area studies, business, law or diplomacy.

 6. Theater arts and media.


Introduces the beginner student to the nature of drama and theatre, explaining the fundamental distinctions between concepts in various environments in the world. Evidence and examples are drawn from non-written traditions (of various world communities) from festivals, rituals until the ‘institution’ of formally built-up stages, theatre houses and arenas. Emphasis is laid on the evolution of social conventions operating in those venues to create both ‘literature’ and ‘performance’.

This course examines and compares the conceptions and evolutions of World theatres from the Western world through Africa and the Orient to Oceania to underscore the broad street of ‘traditions’ which differentiate and underscore similarities in what people call ‘theatre’, ‘performance’ and ‘work’, culminating in various concepts of entertainment and cultural tourism.

 7. Mass communication.


Theory and techniques of advertising as they apply to modern business activities and the mass media. Strategy of preparation, promotion and sales of advertisements. Study includes general, retail display and classified advertising. Characteristics and evaluation of advertising media, rate structures, costs, scheduling and problems of coverage.

The course aims at showing students how marketing is a springboard for advertising and public relations (PR). The students are exposed to the definitions and concepts/philosophies of marketing: the selling concept, the product and the production concepts, the financial and societal marketing concepts. Other areas include product, price, place and promotion; the marketing mix; advertising and PR as tools of marketing and the broader practice of integrated marketing communications.

 8. Accounting.


Accounting is a great course to study for a number of reasons. Accounting provides you with skills and knowledge that can be applied to a number of industries. In fact, so long as there are businesses in the world, accountants will always be needed.

A qualification in accounting is the best way kick-start your career, however, before you decide to start studying, it’s worth noting the key benefits a career in accounting can give you.

There are many qualifications and jobs that deal with money, so how exactly does accounting differ from other types of finance-related roles? Perhaps the easiest way to describe it is that accounting involves dealing with real revenues, actual transactions and observable finance.

 9. Pharmacy.

Pharmacy is not just about a drugstore. Those who study pharmacy can also choose research and development of medicine as a career option. 

A drug/medicine before being prescribed by a doctor has to undergo tests and approvals. It is tested in a lab, studied for dosage and side effects, only then prescription guidelines are formed. The medicines then undergo clinical trials and only when after studying all the possible effects of the medicine, it is introduced in the market. Pharmacists are a part of the entire process. They are also responsible for introducing a new drug/ medicine to various medical practitioners. 

The role of a pharmacist does not end here. They study and keep track of all medicines and products with market surveys by connecting with a medical practitioner and distributors for any side effects, reactions, and allergies, etc.
