The department of philosophy in Mithibai College came into existence in 1961. Prof. Ankush Sawant an eminent scholar and research guide is credited for laying the foundation and inaugurating this department, when the subject was still in its nascent stage. From then on this department has only grown to become one of the most coveted departments of the college.

Almost every year this department acquires laurels by intermittently producing university rank holders. The credit goes to the innovative methods and modern approach of teaching which are student centered. The teachers are constantly devising interesting tools such as presentations, screening socially relevant films, field trips, assignments etc. to make philosophy relevant to the current needs. Students of philosophy are exposed to various sensitive and relevant issues of our society. The field trips organized for our students enhance better interaction among students themselves as well as between students and teachers.

The department has three faculty members who are completely qualified and dedicated to their job. This is seen in their interactions with the students within and outside classrooms. The department organizes two workshops for the students in the field of yoga during an academic year. This helps students to increase their concentration level and make them aware of the practical purposes of yoga. Kudos to the philosophy department for grooming and nurturing students who learn to apply their class room teaching to their day to day life and who will be able to contribute to the welfare of the society with confidence by becoming socially aware citizens.
