58 Courses Under Animal Science Degree

On this article, I am going to list out some Animal Science course outlines in Nigeria Universities which you will study before you can to become a graduate of Animal Science. 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 Animal Science subjects for university students.

I will only list out the course names excluding  GST Courses and those courses with part II and III to avoid too much information. There is no guarantee that the listed Animal Science 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 Animal Science courses listed here.
The following Animal Science courses in Nigeria listed here do not follow the traditional course structure and they have been arranged in alphabetical order. Notwithstanding, the list here covers 100 level courses, 200 level courses 300 courses and 400 level courses.
