List of Courses Under Agronomy


70 Courses Under Agronomy Degree


On this article, I am going to list out some Agronomy course outlines in Nigeria Universities which you will study before you can to become a graduate of Agronomy. Normally, a course outline should contain; course name, course description, course hours etc… but I am going to skip that information and go straight to Agronomy subjects for university students.

I will only list out the subjects that is, course names which will exclude GST Courses and those courses with part II and III to avoid too much information. There is no guarantee that the listed Agronomy subjects (courses) will be fully covered in your school because universities in Nigeria does not use a uniform curriculum. Nevertheless, you will study 97% of Agronomy courses listed here.
