But what is so special about this course… Let me give you a little info about Psychology before you go through the list of universities that offers Psychology in Nigeria.
Psychologists attempt to understand the role of a person’s mental functions in their individual behaviour and how they behave in a social environment. Psychology allows you to understand the principles of what makes people tick. Reliant on scientific methods, the statistics involved are tricky to understand, but worth it in the long run. You will be taught to think critically and this boosts your social skills. This understanding of the human condition is very useful in job interviews and workplace relationships.
Although it won’t necessarily boost your own mental health, it will allow you to diagnose issues among your family and friends. You could say it lets you read their minds… Psychology is a very employable degree. Contrary to the general belief that social sciences are dead ends, psychology can lead to law, social work, teaching, business and more.
You also ought to know which Faculty this Psychology course belongs to in the university. Psychology course can be studied under diifferent Faculties. Same course but a different approach. Below is a comprehensive list of higher institutions in Nigeria that offers Psychology.
