The Faculty of Arts

The Faculty of Arts at Aarhus University is home to a wide range of disciplines and interdisciplinarities. On this basis, we seek to address the most urgent challenges facing society today. A commitment to interact with society and seek solutions to pressing social questions is balanced with an emphasis on contributing to basic research.

The Faculty of Arts was established in 2011 when the former Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Theology and the Danish School of Education were merged. Arts is now the largest faculty for research and teaching on cultural and social practices in Northern Europe.  

The Faculty of Arts employs around 800 full-time members of academic staff and has around 9.550 students. Furthermore, the faculty houses around 1.000 students studying Continuing and further education. Arts has around 300 enrolled PhD students.
