Welcome to the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Dominican University, Ibadan!. We are delighted to have you explore the fascinating world of philosophy through our department. Philosophy is the study of fundamental questions about existence, knowledge, ethics, and the nature of reality. It engages in critical thinking, logical reasoning, and thoughtful analysis to address these timeless inquiries.
At Dominican University, our Philosophy Department is committed to providing a stimulating intellectual environment that encourages students to think critically, question assumptions, and engage in meaningful discussions. We believe that philosophy is not just a subject to be studied, but a way of thinking that can enhance every aspect of life.
Our dedicated faculty members are passionate about their areas of expertise and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the classroom. They are committed to nurturing students' intellectual growth, helping them develop their own philosophical perspectives, and guiding them towards a deeper understanding of the subject matter.
As a student in the Department of Philosophy, you will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of philosophical traditions, from ancient Greek philosophy to contemporary philosophical debates. You will study topics such as metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of mind, and much more. Through lively discussions, writing assignments, and independent research, you will learn to articulate your thoughts clearly, analyze complex ideas, and develop strong argumentative skills.
