Goals - Qualification Profile

The pedagogical goal is to make students familiar with related concepts, doctrines, problems and methods and to find answers to fundamental theoretical, practical and moral questions through a critical and systematic approach.

The aim is to

* trace interdisciplinary relations

* foster competence in expression and argumentation

* develop  flexible conceptual skills

* analyze and reflect on problem solutions and convictions

* cultivate reflective perspectives on moral, political and ideological issues

* participate in multi- and interdisciplinary discourses

Occupational Areas

Philosophy is not a vocational subject, but studying it prepares graduates for a number of occupations because the increasingly specialized knowledge in modern society demands a corrective, action-oriented, encompassing way of looking at things, and because it develops a wide range of transferable skills such as the ability to argue, reason and express oneself clearly.

Occupational areas are

* education (e.g. universities, colleges, adult educational programs)

* publishing, literature

* (print) media

* library science

* information and knowledge management

* (inter-) cullural communication, cultural politics, administration and mediation

* economics (e.g., public relations)

* political, ethical and social counselling

* health services

* freelance work (writers and journalists)
