The vision and mission of FCCU “to impart, create and disseminate knowledge” is best encapsulated in the oldest of disciplines: Philosophy. The wisdom of the sages is captured in the branches Metaphysics and Epistemology; the application of this sagacity is developed by the branches of Logic and Ethics. The wide diversity of theories and application is complemented by an in-depth study of specific thinkers from ancient medieval, modern and contemporary periods. The study of Philosophy thus is the most significant guarantor of critical and creative thinking, and an indispensable requirement of today.


The Department of Philosophy at FCCU is relatively new – launched in 2010, but the rich tradition of learning and knowledge-seeking is adopted and adapted for contemporary times. It is part of the Faculty of Humanities.

Learning Objectives:

  • Know the major philosophical movements through the history of Philosophy, past to present
  • Understand the various methods that have been used to identify and resolve philosophical problems
