Economics

Even if one does not meet an economist every day, there is not a single day when the daily newspaper or television does not report on an economic topic. How do we get out of a financial or economic crisis? Should Germany help indebted EU states? Should a social welfare state have a universal minimum wage? Tese are just a tiny selection of the questions and problems with which economists concern themselves.

Please note

The Economics major is offered in the German language and is thus directed at prospective students with a good command of German. The programme’s German-language web pages provide detailed information needed on the content of the course and application procedures.

Course Structure

The Economics major is embedded in the interdisciplinary College study model with Leuphana Semester, Minor and Complementary Studies. You start your Bachelor studies with the Leuphana semester. The first semester at Leuphana College gives you the opportunity to deal fundamentally with science. The Minor deepens or supplements your Major with another subject area. In Complementary Studies you have the freedom to pursue your thirst for knowledge individually by immersing yourself in a different field of knowledge each semester.

Possible combinations of minors (subsidiary subjects)

The Economics major can be studied in combination with one of the following minor:
