Philosophy is the study, in general, of whether or not we can trust our reality. You will study some of the greatest thinkers of humankind, including their studies of existence, knowledge, values and reason. To study philosophy is to grapple with questions that have occupied humankind for millennia. Philosophy, if you get it, is one of the most intellectually rewarding university subjects.

Philosophy degrees are essentially one-way tickets to the Jobcentre, right? Wrong. The skills that philosophy teaches you will always be in high demand: you will learn to think, write, and challenge with intelligence. As there is no clear career pathway, philosophy is, therefore, a likeably flexible degree choice. Graduates can enter law, finance, business, medicine, journalism, education, academia, and more. Philosophy makes you see things clearer. Injustice, imbalance and unfairness is always in a clearer light to a philosophy graduate. It is a subject for those who hate constraints more than anything else.

What is JAMB UTME subject combination (subject needed) for Philosophy?
You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just an advice) because anything short of that may deny you of Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider College of Education or Polytechnic… Please note – JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you’re having troubles JAMB UTME maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND or Predegree. JAMB UTME subject combination for Philosophy are

  1. Any three subjects
