The three introductory days begin in a festive way on Tuesday evening the 29th with the annual celebration for students and teachers at philosophy called 'Filosofisk sammenkomst’ - this event costs 125 DKK for the three course dinner and requires separate registration – read more and sign up here. 

Courses will begin in week 36 and you can find your schedule in Timetables Arts. 

Registration for courses 1st semester August 5th to 10th

If you have been admitted to line A of the Master’s degree programme in philosophy as of 1 September 2017, you must choose which track seminar and which philosophy topic you wish to study in the autumn semester of 2017. You must make this choice during the period 5-10 August 2017. 

The following track seminars are being offered in the autumn semester of 2017: (click on the link to read more)

The following philosophy topics are being offered in the autumn semester of 2017: (click on the link to read more)

You may not choose a philosophy topic within the same track as your track seminar. You may not choose a philosophy topic within the same track as your track seminar. This means (for instance) that you may not study both “Idealism and Post-Idealism 1” and “Topics in Philosophy 1: Tragedy and Philosophy” because they are both within the same track and are studied together. 
If you have questions about the registration for courses, you can contact the study counsellor for Philosophy. 

At the moment all upcoming “line A” students are enrolled on the same Master’s line. But based on your choice of track seminar, the studies administration office will transfer you to the correct line before you start your studies. This is because the track seminar you choose will determine which of the four “A” lines of the Master’s degree programme you will be enrolled in. For instance, if you choose the track seminar called “Idealism and Post-Idealism 1”, you will be enrolled on line “A2” of the Master’s degree programme: Idealism and Post-Idealism.

The academic regulations explain that your choice of track seminar in the first semester also decides which track seminar you will attend in the second semester. You must attend track seminar 2 within the same track/profile as track seminar 1. For instance, if you are enrolled on “Science and Technology 1” as your track seminar 1 on the first semester, you will be enrolled on the “A4” line of the Master’s degree programme: “Science and Technology”, so in the second semester you must attend the track seminar “Science and Technology 2” as well as a philosophy topic on one of the three other tracks.

Your choice of Topic in Philosophy 1 on the first semester does not determine your choice of Topic in Philosophy 2 on the second semester; but as mentioned above, you may not choose a philosophy topic from the track that offers the track seminar that you have chosen.
