History

The Department of Religion and Human Values (DRHV) became one of the ten departments in the Faculty of Arts of the University of Cape Coast in the 1971/72 academic year. Since then, the Department of Religion and Human Values has been offering a vibrant and challenging environment for both undergraduate and postgraduate (PhD and M.Phil) programmes. In addition, the Department runs a sandwich programme at both the Diploma and Masters Levels. The Department can boast of committed faculties of both nationally, and internationally, repute guiding its students in this direction and training.  As our name depicts, we do not only study religion from variety of disciplinary and methodological approaches but also, concern ourselves with other values with the view to reflecting the plural value systems that have engulfed the contemporary global society. The Department has its own Journal to promote research and in the academia‑‑Oguaa Journal of Religion & Human Values (OJORHV)‑‑to promote research and dissemination of research findings since 2011.
