Bachelor in Socioeconomics

The Bachelor’s degree program in Socioeconomics is aimed at students who are interested in issues that affect economics and society. Students are able to combine courses in economics and the social sciences in a flexible way.

A key characteristic is the empirical focus of all of the subjects taught in the degree program, which places great emphasis on teaching students survey techniques and other methods of data collection and statistical analysis. After the general introductory phase students may choose between the International specialization and the specialization in Behavioral Science, which focuses on empirical social research.

The program starts in the winter semester and usually lasts six semesters, during which students must acquire 180 ECTS credits.

This degree program is taught in German. Therefore, a good knowledge of German is an essential prerequisite to successfully completing the degree program. Proof of German language proficiency at DSH 2 level or equivalent is required for admission.
