Specialisation Interactions of Economy and Society
Within the English-taught Bachelor programme in Business and Economics, students can specialise in ‘Interactions of Economy and Society’ (20 ECTS), a module which is co-organised by several institutes of the Department of Socioeconomics.
The specialisation recognizes the embeddedness of the economy in society and ecological conditions, an understanding which is at the core of socioeconomics. Reflecting this approach, this specialisation goes beyond teaching and applying standard economic models by including aspects of law and politics, history and culture. Students opting for this specialization should have a definite interest in political, social and economic issues, and a motivation to develop a holistic view of the economy. The multidisciplinary approach of the Department is reflected in the course programme, which includes compulsory courses in social science theories and empirical research methods and electives in economic sociology, economic history, economic law, and political economy. Students will be able to apply the theories and methods they are taught to concrete socioeconomic challenges, which promises a rewarding learning experience.
