While there are distinct social social science courses in the country, it should not come as a surprise if you see some of these social science courses at your school’s faculty of arts. Sometimes, these disciplines are related and can be differentiated by very fine margins, that is to say, you cannot easily separate some of these disciplines as purely social science or arts courses, so do not be surprised when the familiar ones pop up in this list.

Also, the Law discipline is among the arts courses in Nigeria today but is studied under a separate faculty of law and the degrees awarded to graduating students of both faculties are purely different.
