Overview

Development Studies is a multidisciplinary department which embraces Seven
different units:

-African Studies
-Development Studie
-History
-International Relations
-Philosophy
-Political Science
-Religious Studies

By getting entrance into these units you gain and experience the following:

Development Studies - you opt for a change from ill-being to well-being depicted by the three-legged sustainability of development known to be social, economic and environmental pillars of development.

Philosophy - you understand yourself in unitary self-experience and distinctively distinguish yourself in dissociated self-experiences in the world around you. Through inquisition into the causal principles from where every effect originates- philosophy posits analysis of logical reasoning embedded metaphysically by the origin, nature and scope of Knowledge through schibility, intelligibility, sensibility and intentionality. Where the Intender becomes the Intended, The condition becomes the “The Conditioned”(Herder)The Knower becomes The Known through objectified subjectivization which stems from self-perfective- driving force called Soul.

History - you know your roots and come to understand the “futuristic- now” opined by the tomorrow which cannot exist without “the today” which stems from “The Yesterday”.

Political Science - you understand how “The Common Good” is measured by “The SummumBonum”translated as “The highest Good” named by Aristotle “The Polis” from where the word politics originates.

International Relations - you know yourself not as an end to yourself but as anarchetypally means to knowing the end of ends (pluriformity) around the globe on which we live- opined by relation of relations deontologically teleological (Pierce’).

Religious Studies - you know that beyond every extramental entitative experience there exist “The Absolute Subsisting Existence” many call that God – and it is only in our programmes where you are offered freely “A Pass-word” to knowing God through Religious Studies. Hence, beyond every reality there exist “The Real Absolute Reality that transcends every being – and it is as such according to its suchness.

African Studies - you simply reconcile with yourself (Pre- colonial, Colonial, Post-colonial and Post-modernity in Africa) assert and understand yourself as an African, African Philosophy-The African Renaissance. This package provides choice and flexibility in its programmes of study.

It provides and promotes integrated equal opportunities and excellence in teaching and learning. I addresses race equality and perfects the significance of differences among ethnic groups.
