What is Philosophy?

It is an academic discipline that studies the general and fundamental questions about existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language.

What you should know

Philosophy as a field of study is not so popular among Nigerians. Consequently, gaining admission for a degree in it is not as competitive compared to other courses. Provided you perform very well in your UTME and meet other requirements, your chances of gaining admission to study it are high.

You must also be aware of the fact that the universities above have slightly varying requirements. To know those requirements read JAMB & WAEC Subject Combination For Philosophy.
