Course supplement Socioeconomics in the BA Political Science

Students of Political Science at the UDE can choose the Socioeconomics course supplement since the summer semester 2018. In seven courses totaling 33 CP, students expand their political science studies to include a socioeconomic perspective. In understanding economic contexts, they benefit from their prior institutional and political economy knowledge and at the same time can supplement their understanding of political contexts with an economic component.

In addition to interdisciplinarity, a central principle is a pluralism of different theories and models, also with the aim of making the controversy of economic policy positions visible.
