Welcome to the Department of Philosophy, Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike. In line with Philosophy tradition, this is a Department where ideas are generated and these constructive ideas rule the world. Our Department is young and developing at a supersonic speed. This gives us the rare opportunity of personal contacts with students. In this sense, it is more like a family than a Department. It is a Department where intellectual growth is pursued highly yet the humanity of man and his relationship with God are not undermined.
The Department of philosophy is made up of highly skilled and talented manpower that has the undying zeal to transmit knowledge which is power to the generations under their tutelage. We therefore welcome on board our prospective students into the regular undergraduate programme and the part time undergraduate programme. We offer the conventional philosophy courses and lay emphasis on the African philosophical traditions, philosophy of science and agricultural philosophy. We welcome on board our prospective students into the Department of philosophy where people are trained to exercise their mental muscles and to think the unthinking and the “unthinkable” as thought.

To achieve this, the department must be made up of qualified teachers who have the knowledge and are burning with the zeal to transmit this knowledge into the students. This effective impartation of knowledge must be done in a congenial atmosphere devoid of acts that are capable of destabilizing the students emotionally and otherwise. Therefore, the department will at all times seek to enthrone merit as the benchmark for all actions.
To become the ‘primus inter-pares of the universities and Departments offering philosophy as a course in Nigeria and to favorably compete with colleagues all over the globe.
