Philosophy

Bachelor of Arts (as Joint Bachelor of Arts in the Subjects X and Y)

Philosophie, B.A. Joint Bachelor of Arts

Description

The Bachelor of Arts programme in the special form of Joint Bachelor of Arts in Subjects X and Y allows to combine two different subjects/components.

The component Philosophy attempts to understand the nature, thinking and acting of human beings. From this comprehensive basic idea, it is initially not a specialised science; it is free to turn to the most different issues and areas. Students thus need strong language comprehension skills as well their own linguistic precision and the ability to think in an abstract way. Apart from philosophical prior knowledge, a sound basic knowledge of history, ethics and history of religion make the initial stage of program easier.

Special Features Preparatory steps:

Philosophers can find a career in the most different fields. Apart from teaching and research at universities, their fields of activity include administration, non-formal education, communications and media, associations and organisations, journalism, tourism, libraries/archives and human resources. However, in order to accomplish a successful career start, additional qualifications in their respective field of activity are usually required.

For this reason it is important to start gaining practical work experience in relevant organisations early in the degree programme. This way students can promote themselves as competent professionals in practice and make important professional contacts. The likelihood of finding a good position is definitely heightened if the student is flexible when it comes to commuting or even moving abroad. Good English language skills are particularly important when it comes to the international job market.
