The interdisciplinary bachelor's degree is divided into two areas, which go hand in hand with steadily increasing specialization and advancing scientific standards.
In the first two years of study, students are familiarized with the basic terms and methods from the three areas of philosophy, political science and economics. Individual emphases can be set on political science or economics.
In the third year of study, the focus is on interdisciplinarity. The three subjects philosophy, political science and economics are brought together and deepened and tested in practice as part of an internship. Finally, the bachelor thesis provides evidence of the skills acquired on the content and methodological level.
The Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics should be completed in six semesters.
