Most of the teaching at the Department of the History of Ideas is in the form of traditional university lectures. In addition to these lectures, some subjects are taught by student teachers, where you work in small groups and participate actively. As a university student, you attend significantly fewer lessons than you were used to at upper secondary school. However, you gradually learn to study more independently. You find that being a history of ideas student is a full-time job.
Much of your time is spent on preparation. You read many texts in Danish, English and a third language. You also spend much of your time discussing academic topics in your reading group. In fact, your reading group can play a significant role in both your academic and your social life as a student.
The Department of the History of Ideas is located at the Nobel Park – a recently built complex adjacent to the original university buildings. The Nobel Park houses a number of humanistic subjects. Adjoining the Department of the History of Ideas are a library and a reading room. You also have access to a computer room with wireless Internet access. The department shares lecture theatres, a canteen and other facilities with the other departments at the Nobel Park.
The history of ideas provides you with an opportunity to be part of a social student environment. You can therefore add a social element to your academic studies.
