Описание программы обучения "Economics, Law and Social Sciences"

The Master program combines the three disciplines:

  • Law,
  • Social sciences (political science, sociology) and
  • Economics.

This course of study is designed to give graduates of relevant BA courses the opportunity to develop or deepen an interdisciplinary perspective on social problems. The course of study is characterised in particular by a high degree of flexibility: Students can choose from a broad range of courses in order to set their own priorities.

The aim of the program is to enable students to carry out an independent, interdisciplinary and reflective analysis of the political, social and market-economy order of the Federal Republic of Germany, including its European and international connections.

To this end, the program conveys the methodological and theoretical foundations and their application-oriented implementation as well as subject-specific and interdisciplinary knowledge.

Карьерные перспективы по завершению программы обучения "Economics, Law and Social Sciences"

Due to the interdisciplinary orientation, as a graduate you will have a broad, theoretically and methodologically sound perspective in Economics, Law and Social Sciences. On the other hand, the individual choice of courses as well as the integration of self-study units give you the opportunity to specialize according to your interests. In particular, specialisations at the intersection of the three disciplines are particularly suitable.

Our graduates work at national and international level in the following professional fields:

  • in science and research
  • in companies
  • in NGOs
  • in bandages
  • with unions
  • in public administration

In order to facilitate a seamless transition into professional life, in addition to the crediting of internships, there is above all the possibility of already writing the Master's thesis in cooperation with a research institution, a company or an organisation.


Международный обмен по программе обучения "Economics, Law and Social Sciences"

A semester abroad in an English-speaking country is strongly recommended. The International Office will be happy to assist you in organizing your stay abroad.

Стажировки и практика в программе обучения "Economics, Law and Social Sciences"

You will be offered the opportunity to take part in internships as part of the course of study, which will be worth 6 credit points as examination work. However, a maximum of one module can be introduced as an internship in the scope of 6 LP.

Учебный план программы обучения "Economics, Law and Social Sciences"

The four-semester standard period of study comprises a three-semester study phase (90 credit points) and one semester for writing the Master's thesis (30 LP).


1st variant: studies with the disciplinary focus

  • 72 LP in disciplinary focus
  • 12 LP in Elective section*
  • 6 LP at least one supplementary module outside the area of focus and
  • 30 LP Master thesis

2nd variant: Study with two disciplinary focuses in

  • 36 LP each in both disciplinary foci,

    • of which 27 LP each in one of the respective fields of study of Law (R) and/or Social Sciences (S) as well as further 9 LP freely selectable from both of the respective fields of study or, for the major in Economics (W), 12 LP each from both fields of study as well as further freely selectable 12 LP from these,

  • 18 LP Elective selection*

  • 30 LP Master thesis

*In the elective section, modules from all three fields of study can be completed that do not already count towards the main focus, as well as, if necessary, subject-related modules from a foreign university. The elective area thus enables a specialisation in one of the two fields of study or an interdisciplinary extension.

Teaching program

The teaching program of the disciplinary focuses is divided into two study areas each with a series of compulsory and optional modules:

Law (R):

  • Public law and foundations
  • Commercial and tax law

Social Science (S):

  • Political Science
  • Sociology

Economics Science (W):

  • Organization and economic policy
  • Theoretical and empirical foundations


Faculty of Economics, Law and Social Sciences
University of Erfurt

The Faculty of Economics, Law and Social Sciences combines the fields of law (public and private law), social sciences (political sciences and sociology) and economics into an innovative teaching and research program. When it started operating in 2000, it was the first faculty in the German-speaking area to combine the above subjects, which had differentiated themselves over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries, into an interdisciplinary program. With the establishment of the company, we took into account the social challenges that required an interdisciplinary perspective on increasingly complex problems. In the meantime, the political science teaching and research program has firmly established itself in the German university landscape and has also found several imitators.

Political research links disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives and, in addition to basic theoretical questions from economics, social science and law, is devoted to, among others, the change of state and market under the conditions of the current European multilevel system as well as the political, economic and legal instruments for crisis management.

With the B.A. Political Science, M.A. Political science and the English-language Master of Public Policy, we offer our approx. 800 students the best prerequisites for developing an interdisciplinary political science perspective on the social challenges of the 21st century. The supra-regional origin of most of the students is a clear sign of the high attractiveness of the courses.
