Worst courses with Terribly Low Employment Opportunities in Nigeria



In the Nigerian universities, there are myriads of courses to study. Some of these courses are fully packed with a colossal number of employment opportunities that will prepare you for the rugged world of the job market in Nigeria. However, there are some courses found in the Nigeria universities that are so devoid of many employment opportunities; these courses provide to its graduate's very low employment opportunities which are extremely discouraging.

Knowing fully well that getting a great job in Nigeria of a six-figure structure is as hard as finding a needle in a haystack, this course may need to be reconsidered if you have a passion for them.

Well, without wasting so much of your time, I will provide you with the worst courses with terribly low job opportunities.

 These are the Worst Courses with Very Low Employment Opportunities in Nigeria

1.      Christian Religious Education

Christian religious education is one of the numerous course studied at Nigerian universities. Christian religious education is concerned with everything one needs to know about Christian practices. Christian religious knowledge is a course that tries to impact the deep knowledge about Christianity to its members

However, this is one of the worst courses to study if you are looking for a job that offers a 5-6 figure structure. There are only two employment opportunities that await graduates in the field of Christian religious knowledge. The first employment opportunity is to work in the church offering spiritual service and so on, the second employment opportunity is to disseminate the knowledge that you have acquired in primary schools, secondary schools and at the tertiary level, which is the teaching career.

I know that you already know that anybody can offer spirit services in the house of God, so reading Christian religious service is so ….

2.      Human Kinetics/ Physical Education

Human kinetics/physical education is a course that is concerned with staying fit especially the practice of exercises, being a good sportsman and so on. Human kinetics/ physical education offer very low employment opportunities. The employment opportunities of human kinetics/ physical education are found in sports and the teaching profession. Let be pragmatic here, some of the biggest footballers in the world like Christiano Ronaldo did not need a degree in physical education or human kinetics to be one of the biggest sports stars.

To be a national, local or international sportsman does not require any degree. In other words, you just go for it. Having the degree is practically more or less a waste of time.

3.      Educational Related Courses

Educational related courses include courses like Education physics, Education Biology, Education Economics, Education accounting and so on. These courses will offer you very low employment opportunities in Nigeria. As the name implies, graduates in the field are known as Educationalist. They are teachers. In other words, employment opportunities are only found in the teaching profession.

4.      Music

We all know that the music industry in Nigeria is growing very fast. It is one of the richest careers in Nigeria. Alas, having a degree in Music will not expose you to the limelights, only talents will. We all know that most of our famous superstars are not even graduates; some who are graduates did not study music.

Having a degree in Music in any known Nigerian university would not guarantee you to become a famous musician, the real truth is that you would still pass through that same road that others who do not even have any degree would pass. Some may even make it while you are still dusting your music certificate and hoping

5.      Theatre Art

The movie industry of Nigeria is another fast-growing industry in Nigeria. The requisite or to become a star movie actor or actress in Nigeria is certainly not a degree in Theatre art. Anybody can act a movie in Nigeria. Those who study law can decide to pursue a career in acting. In the movie industry of Nigeria, degrees do not speak only a true talent does.

6.      Crop Science

Crop science is an agriculturally related course which is narrowed down to the science of crops. The employment opportunities presented by crop science as a course is extremely low. In Nigeria, most graduates who study crop science end up as teachers in the primary, secondary and if lucky in the tertiary level

7.       Animal science

. Animal science is mostly concerned with animals. It is concerned with the science of those animals in terms of what they eat and how they stay healthy. In other words, they can be seen as doctors for animals. In Nigeria, animal science does not offer so much employment opportunities. Apart from the employment opportunities of working in a commercial animal rearing farms which non-professionals are now involved in our teaching career, there are no more employment opportunities that await graduates in the field of animal science.

8.      Home Economics

Home economics is concerned with the economics of the home. Home economics lay emphasis on such things like care of the kitchen, care of the toilet and so on. This course would certainly have extremely low employment opportunities.

The knowledge and skills acquired from the study of home economics can be acquired by anybody at anywhere. Therefore, anybody even with an O’level certificate can perform the jobs of home economics which are mostly jobs found at a fast food center.

9.      Social studies/Sociology

Social studies/ Sociology is concerned with the society and man. The knowledge and skills obtained during the study of sociology offer certainly no place for its application. A sociologist cannot even work in the secondary level of education because at this level more than 80 % of secondary schools in Nigeria do not study social studies.

10.  Adult Education

Adult education is concerned with educating adults who may not have the privilege to study while they were still in their youths. Adult education can be studied in the universities that are situated in Nigeria. Graduates in the field of adult education are provided with a very slim opportunity for employment.

The only guaranteed employment opportunity for this course is, of course, the training of adults in educational centers. Graduates in Adult education may not even have the chance to teach in the primary and secondary level of education.
