Philosophy

Man, his complex nature and the increasingly more complex society in which he lives and his relationship with the metaphysical world (expressed in myths and religions), have been interesting subject for investigation by scholars. Using various instruments qualitative and quantitative (or a combination of both) the “Arts and Social Sciences” disciplines concern man, his society and his relationship with the metaphysical world. The NCE Arts and Social Sciences Programme seek to draw the teacher and his student to moral dialogue about their collective realities.
