95 Courses Under Theatre and Film Studies Degree

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