Inquisitive mind? Critical mind? A study in Philosophy focuses on processes of political, social and economic development all around the world. It addresses critical problems such as poverty and deterioration of the environment.
It is a course which offers an extensive choice of development options on a variety of diverse topics involving the study of local processes in particular contexts, regions and countries; encouraging hypothetical, empirical and multidisciplinary methods; and perspectives.
At Redeemer’s University, the curriculum is designed to sharpen our students’ intellect in specific development matters, producing well equipped graduates with relevant tools needed to manage the challenges in the 21st century market and beyond.
It strives to develop the ability to reason clearly, to distinguish between good and bad argument, to navigate through a complicated maze of questions, to clarify puzzling concepts; and to use intelligence and logic in situations ruled all too often by prejudice.
Students would develop skills needed to understand points of view in a variety of controversies and expand their horizons to seeing beyond the social, political and economic world as it presently exists; and then, develop a controlled but imaginative awareness of alternatives.
Graduates of Philosophy are equipped to work in various fields and are well sought after because of their ability to think, analyse and communicate ideas in an understandable, balanced and well thought-out manner.
They find opportunities on varied sectors especially public sector organisations like NGOs, Management and Planning Institutions, Armed Forces, Think Tank Organisations, Foreign Missions and United Nations Organisation Agencies.
Many graduates build lucrative careers as development managers, public policy analysts, intelligence officers, community organisers, and humanities bibliographers.
