Andreas Aas Thorud (born 14 February 1984) is a former Norwegian football defender.

Thorud started his career in Skjetten SK. He was brought to regional greats Lillestrøm SK ahead of the 2003 season. He got one Norwegian Premier League game in 2003, and five in 2004, without scoring. After the 2004 season he made something of a shock move when he retired from professional football, only 20 years old.

Ahead of the 2007 season, he signed for Lørenskog IF. Ahead of the 2008 season he was wanted by second-tier club Sandnes Ulf, but joined Manglerud Star to stay in Oslo. After one season he returned to Lørenskog but made his final retirement from football in June 2009.

Thorud studied philosophy, religious history, psychology and sociology at the University of Oslo in the period 2004-2011. His Masters Thesis in philosophy, achieved in June 2011, is a study of the russian philosopher Alexandre Kojève which bears the title "Amicus Alexandre Kojève".
