5 10. Competence profile for the Master s graduate Competence description The Master s programme in Philosophy provides knowledge of philosophical traditions and problems at the highest level and enables students to reflect on these in the context of the discipline of philosophy, in interdisciplinary contexts and in a broader communications perspective. Students learn to identify and evaluate academic literature of a philosophical nature and, more generally, how theories emerge within the philosophical sphere. Students also learn to delineate, analyse and communicate a topic in a linguistically precise and pedagogically focused manner; to engage in constructive critical dialogue with relevant partners and target groups; to define their own skillsenhancement needs; and to assume responsibility for their own academic development. The programme s Phenomenology and Philosophy of Mind concentration places special emphasis on specific interdisciplinary contexts, while the upper-secondary-school concentration places particular emphasis on the communicative and general educational aspect of philosophy. Depending on the programme s concentration, graduates in Philosophy are able to fulfil a wide range of different functions. The following areas are worth mentioning: organisations in which academic graduates are particularly well qualified due to their ability to conduct analyses of a conceptual, conceptual-historical or interdisciplinary nature publishing work, in which graduates are able to deploy their ability to identify and articulate implicit conceptual contexts and suppositions in texts of a theoretical nature cultural dissemination, where graduates, by virtue of their knowledge of different philosophical theories context and reception history, are able to communicate knowledge between different philosophical perceptions journalism, where the subject falls within the programme s main areas teaching in upper-secondary schools and other educational institutions. Competency objectives The Master s programme in Philosophy builds on the competencies acquired on the Bachelor s programme. Graduates in Philosophy have the following specific competences: Knowledge and understanding of philosophical traditions, problems, methodology, schools and their reception history and interconnections within the subject s main areas, one or more of which are based on the highest international research how to understand and reflect on this field of knowledge and to identify academic problems in it. Skills in mastery of the subject s academic methodology and tools. Master s graduates are able to: o systematically identify relevant academic literature using generally accepted methods, and evaluate and select this based on their own academic standards o define a problem or subject area for analysis and investigation on the basis of traditional and topical discussions o based on relevant academic literature, conduct an analysis and study of a philosophical text or a delineated philosophical problem or subject area, in a way that clearly elucidates the basic assumptions of the analysis o present an analysis of a problem or subject area in a linguistically accurate manner, and demonstrate mastery of relevant terminology in a way that is well structured, understandable, focused and pedagogic in relation to the relevant target group o engage in constructive critical dialogue regarding aspects of the different stages of an analysis. Competencies The subject s three concentrations also involve the specific competencies listed below. Graduates are able to: o based on their academic grounding in philosophy, participate in and manage complex workand development contexts, generally via conceptual clarification and explanation of relevant theories traditions and contexts, phenomenologically and in terms of philosophy of mind, in 5

6 o o interdisciplinary or upper-secondary-school contexts, as part of general education and communication based on an independent piece of work on philosophical theory, initiate, implement and take professional responsibility for interdisciplinary collaboration, phenomenologically and in terms of philosophy of mind in more specific interdisciplinary contexts or at uppersecondary-school level (for subjects taught in upper-secondary schools) take responsibility for their academic development and specialisation within the chosen Master s concentration.
