Department of Philosophy:


The department of Philosophy is one of the few departments with which our institution MDM started its journey in 1964. At the time of its inception, the department offered only the pass course and later introduced honours course in 1995. The department regularly organizes seminars, workshops and special lectures by eminent academicians. Wall Magazine Darsan Darpan and departmental journal Darsan Manjari are also published on issues bearing philosophical significance. The department maintains a regular contact with the guardians to convey their wards' progress. Apart from academic activities, the department offers psychological counselling session for improving the mental wellbeing of the students. Reading and nurturing Philosophy develops the intellectual capabilities of a student and make him/her more critical and analytic. It develops one�s consciousness and makes him/her question, wonder, analyse and think.
