70 Courses You Can Study Without Mathematics

Last Updated on

List of Courses You Can Study Without Mathematics and the Universities/Polytechnics offering such course.

Mathematics is an indispensable tool in computer science, insurance and the economy. Mathematics is the intensive study of abstract structures and geometrical objects, and the discovery and description of the laws that govern them.

We cannot do without Mathematics, yet, this very same subject is a nightmare to some many students. The thought of Mathematics class assignment, not even test or examination is a big problem. I know, I hate Mathematics too. In fact, I hate anything that involves complex calculation even Accounting. But do you know that Mathematics is not a compulsory subject in O level / WAEC for some courses in the university and also polytechnics?

What I meant is, you don’t need credit in Mathematics to study some major courses in Nigeria universities but you definitely must have a passing grade like D7 or E8. Some of you are sitting at home for long because you don’t have credit in Mathematics or English Language but I have good news for you.

I spent quality time going through over 670 courses and I found out that there are over 60 courses you can study without having credit in Mathematics. Yes!!! This is true but you may never know because you have never been within the four walls of the university. Besides, no university in Nigeria will inform you that there are courses you can study without Mathematics.

Now listen... There are courses that require you to have at least D7 or E8 while others do not require Mathematics at all. The list below are a combination of courses which do require D7 and E8 or no requirement all at and each of these courses has a condition attached to them.

Please note: What you’re about to read is only a list. If any of this course interest you, you can check the universities and Polytechnics offering the course below.
