Basic Science, Social Science, Commercial & Art Subjects In Unilag

What may be considered as a social science subject in a particular  university might not be considered as such in another university hence I want to quickly list out the basic science , art and social science subjects in Unilag.

For example, Unilag has stated times without number that Commerce is not an acceptable social science subject. 

Notes: The courses below are not all that exist but they are very controversial and hence the need to make clarfications about them and that’s why I titled the post basic……


Social Sciences;
Geography, Economics, Government

Art Subjects;
English, literature in English, C.R.K/I.R.K & Languages

Sciences;
Physics, Chemistry, Biology, AGRIC 

Commercials;
Financial Accounting, Commerce

What even inspires this post is the fact that i saw a reader’s comment in one of my previous post,  she said she once argued with a friend about Geography being an art subject or social science.

There are other subjects not written above and obviously you should know where those ones belong. The above listed subjects at are the ones i felt need to be clarfied.
