Department of Philosophy/Religious & Cultural Studies
The Department of Philosophy/Religion and Cultural Studies is one of the new Departments created at the beginning of the 2019/2020 Academic Session. Before now, it existed within the Triplet programs of History and Strategic Studies/Philosophy/Religion and Cultural Studies.  All thanks to our dynamic Vice-Chancellor, Prof ChinedumNwajiuba, and his management crew. The Department is a twin Department representing the rational and moral human personality. Both Philosophy and Religion offer human-oriented courses that aim at developing the whole human personality [rational and spiritual/moral].

In Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu-Alike, the Department is poised to developing human dignity, integrity, excellence, the dignity of labor, and moral rectitude in our students, hence the department is student-oriented. We have energetic, enthusiastic, motivated, and learned teaching and non-teaching staff that make this singular dream of nursing new humanity in our students a reality.
