List of Courses You Can Study Without Economics In Nigeria Universities.

You are here to know the courses you can study without Economics. Perhaps you failed or had a pass in Economics instead of credit. There are core subjects attached to the three departments in secondary school (Science, Art and Commercial). Mathematics and English are core subjects in all these departments. But there are other subjects that are core. For example, Literature in English is the core subjects for Art students. If you fail Literature, you may find it difficult if not possible to see a course you can study.

Though Economics is a subject that cut across all departments in secondary, Economics is a core subject for commercial students. You can’t escape Economics. Many schools may accept D7 or E8 in Mathematics and English for some courses but for Economics, you must have credit… I have gone through the entire 700 undergraduates courses in Nigeria only a few courses do not require Economics. This simply means there are a few courses you can study without Economics.


Please note: We have a general course requirement and special course requirement. The latter means some universities may not accept what other universities accept. This is why I tell my commercial student that if they wish to be on the safe side, they should make sure they pass Economics in their O level examination. Because Economics can easily replace Commerce and stand-in for Accounting.

Art and Commercial student’s frequently asked question is if it were possible to study Political science without Economics. Yes! It is true that you can study Political Science without Economics but there is more to this answer. Please click on the Subject combination for Political science to know more.

Please don’t get me wrong. There are courses in the university that do not require Economics at all and this are mostly science courses and art courses. But if a course requires Economics as a compulsory subject combination, then it is expected that you must have credit… Don’t let anyone deceive you.

Just go through the comment section.
