Strategy and Vision for the Faculty of Humanities

The Faculty of Humanities at Aalborg University (AAU) is concerned with what it means to be human, with how humans learn, interact and understand each other, and with technological, linguistic and cultural connections in the global world. The Faculty of Humanities at AAU supports the further development of human activities within a number of contexts: business, education, health, social and cultural activities, and develops in mutual and inspirational interaction with contemporary challenges. The interdisciplinary approach of the Faculty of Humanities at AAU is based on strong mono-disciplines deeply rooted in critical, analytical and creative traditions. The basis of all our activities – whether research, education or knowledge collaboration – is our focus on relations within and across professional competences, disciplines, cultures, societies and the surrounding world. We aim to put our humanistic competences into play where they can make a difference, and therefore, the title of our strategy is Humanities - knowledge for the World.
