The subject-specific and substantial elements of the philosophy programme have a significant bearing on how I understand my role as a facilitator of communication, says Hans T. Wiig, who is a web editor for Drammen municipality.
Philosophy is a subject that involves investigation, reflection and writing, and these are the skills that I primarily use in my job as senior adviser in the Ministry of Education and Research, says Simen Rommetveit Halvorsen.
By studying philosophy, I have learned to think in an analytical and critical way, says Lene Bomann-Larsen, who is a research coordinator at the Norwegian Military Academy.
In my job, knowledge of the ideas of classical philosophers is just as important as the ability to analyse a problem, explains Anne Rose Røsbak Feragen, who holds a Master’s degree in philosophy.
Use more time to obtain an overview and try to express and communicate to others what you are acquiring through knowledge. The jobs will then present themselves, thinks philosopher Helge Kaasin, who is a new media consultant at NRK.
