Learning outcomes

Upon completion of the course, the student is expected to have received:

  • a first contact with his or her own research, presented in the form of an essay
  • in-depth knowledge of two different areas of philosophy.


The course consists of three parts:

  • Elective course 1 (7,5 credits)
  • Elective course 2 (7,5 credits)
  • C-essay (15 credits)
The list of elective courses varies from term to term. Please contact the department for the current list.

The C-essay may be exchanged for two additional elective courses, but this alternative does not fulfil the requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Arts with theoretical philosophy as the main field of study. This alternative is mainly for exchange students whose universities do not allow essays at that level.


The education consists of lectures and seminars.


The examination of the C-essay is done by public defence of the student's essay. The examination of the other parts is done through assignments.
