Sustainable Economics (ZuWi): Deepening and Application

"Sustainable Economics: Deepening and Application (ZuWi Vertiefung und Anwendung)" builds on the content of the StEOP course "VWL & ZuWi" and deepens the skills and competences acquired therein.

The course consists of a lecture part and an exercise part. This allows students to specialise in the "Common Body of Knowledge" (CBK) based on their personal interests.

This wide range of specialisations reflects the diversity of the Department of Socioeconomics and the study branch Economics - Environment - Politics (WUPol).

This is what the students say

"I've never discussed a course so much and so often with people outside WU. The topics really moved me."

"Cutting-edge topics are exciting and thought-provoking."


"I like that we look outside of the neoclassical view and get an insight on important topics, as climate change and inequality. Presentations and discussions as a format are really great."
