Welcome Message from the Dean
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics website.
The School of Religion, Philosophy & Classics comprises three main disciplinary complexes. They are located at two sites, viz. Religion, Philosophy and Classics (Howard College, Durban) and Theology, Religion, Philosophy and Ethics (Pietermaritzburg). Our vision is to be a centre of excellence in African scholarship in the five main areas of Religion, Theology, Philosophy, Ethics and Classics. Our mission statement is to critically and constructively advance excellence in African-led scholarship through research, teaching and learning, and community engagement in a global context.
We are a proud cross-campus school with nearly 6 000 students enrolled in our courses annually and nearly 300 postgraduate students enrolling for our qualifications.
