Faculty of Economics and Social SciencesEconomics – Bachelor 25%

Economic issues play a central role in our daily lives: economic growth, wage inequality and unemployment are featured just as frequently in the media as financial crises, emissions trading or the consequences of globalisation. At the same time, we must all make numerous economic decisions in our private and professional lives. Students in the economics programme focus on analysing and answering these and similar questions.

Course Content

Based on modern methods and concepts, the degree programme in economics conveys a fundamental understanding of economic relationships. Thanks to the skills and competencies acquired during the academic programme, graduates will be able to successfully analyse and develop economic and societal processes.  

Therefore, acquisition of the fundamental theoretical tools, mathematical methods and empirical techniques associated with economics are a prerequisite. 

The core areas of economics include compulsory modules in microeconomics and macroeconomics as well as specialisation options on the basis of elective modules in which students can familiarise themselves with various topical areas of economics. 

As a result, economics  as a minor subject is a promising complement to other degree programmes. Thanks to the core areas of economics on the one hand and the broad range of courses offered in the electives on the other, economics as a minor can be considered an interesting additional qualification for students of other disciplines.

Course Structure

Successful completion of the minor subject requires a total of 35 credits (CP) in both compulsory and elective courses. The degree programme is a modular programme. Of the 35 credits, 23 credits are to be gained in compulsory economics courses and 12 credits can be gained in the elective specialisations in economics.
