As a student of the Bachelor’s degree programme in philosophy, your working week is divided between teaching and preparation. Your teaching consists of traditional university lectures and classroom lessons with a student teacher. You have fewer scheduled lessons than you did in upper secondary school, which means you have to be good at planning your time. You find that university studies are a full-time job.
Much of your study time involves preparing for lessons. You need to set aside a fair amount of time for independent reading, but you also need to allow time for work in your reading group, which provides you with an academic network, as well as a social one. You use your reading group to discuss and complete compulsory assignments.
As a student at the Department of Philosophy, you spend every day at the new Nobel Park, which is an extension of the university complex. The Nobel Park is where many humanistic degree programmes are based. The Department of Philosophy has its own library and reading room, but shares lecture theatres, the canteen and surrounding areas with the other fields of study at the Nobel Park.
Philosophy studies involve more than lessons and preparation. You find that the subject attracts a large group of enterprising students who enliven the activities organised by the different associations.
You can also join in a large number of events organised by other departments at the Faculty of Humanities and by the University of Aarhus. These include lectures, dissertation defence, intro days, seminars and sports days. Click here to see the programme.
