After completion of the B.A. (Philosophy) course a student will be well equipped with -

a) ability in critical thinkings and forming aguments thereby enhancing the student logical reasoning accumen. This helps immensely in appearing for various competitive examinations such as banking, civil services etc.

b) understanding of moral concepts and principles and apply them practically in their day to day life.

c) ability to read and comprehend philosophical texts and form argument, thereby enabling to think rationally about any philosophical idoelogies relevant to both theoretical and practical aspects of it.

 

The curriculum also helps in organising, recognising and expressing arguments which may be interdisciplinary in nature.

The department of philosophy was established along with the department of English in the year 2011, offering philosophy as an elective subject to BA-English Core under the temporary affiliation of Mizoram University. Having only two semesters every year, it started its classes with one Lecturer taking two classes every day. However, after 10 years, the department functions as a full-fledged department-offering core paper in 2020-2021 only with just one student opting for the core paper.
