Courses Under Islamic Studies Degree

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