Art Courses Available in Polytechnics, UTME and SSCE Subject Requirements

Polytechnics to Consider for Art Courses
Art courses are rear in Polytechnics. Hope you know that? Art departments are not as common in the Polys as engineering related courses. The reason for this is because Polytechnics are primarily founded to train and groom students for the technical fields rather than in art and humanity, physical or medical science.

For example, you won’t find Law, Philosophy, Linguistics, English, Literature, Communication and Language Arts, History and International Studies etc in any polytechnic in Nigeria. They belong to the polytechnics. However, some polys still retain a few Art courses you can go for.

2. Among the available courses opened to art students in polytechnics are Mass Communication, Library and Information Science/Management, Public Administration, Local Government Studies etc.

This post will address these courses one after the other, the polytechnics where you can study them, their O’level subject requirements and UTME subject combination.

First the basics ...

Who is an Art Student?

An Art candidate belongs to the so-called art-class while in secondary school. As a result, he was taught the likes of Government, Literature-in-English, Civil Education, Islamic/Arabic Studies (IRS) or Christian Religion Studies/knowledge (IRS). These subjects prepare him for the related courses in the future especially while in the university, polytechnic or college of education.

Therefore, he sits for the above-mentioned subjects and that are what he has in his NECO, WAEC, NABTEB or NABIS.

Also, he is expected to write any three of the above subjects together with the English Language (which is compulsory) in UTME to be offered admission into his proposed institution.

Now, what are the polytechnics offering Art courses which he can consider in JAMB UTME?
