Overview

The master’s course is a consecutive course for students with a bachelor’s degree in social science or economics.
In the process of internationalization, political and economic aspects are closely interlinked. For example, within the framework of European integration, economic interdependence, political cooperation and the legal protection (communitisation) of regulatory areas are often directly related to one another. In addition, there are also many other forms of political, economic and legal integration processes in global space. The focus of the course is therefore on the mutual relationships and forms of communication between economic, political and legal aspects of international integration and disintegration, as well as other forms of thematically relevant political, economic and legal processes in the global space.

  • Acquisition of subject-specific knowledge about the process of international integration / disintegration and other forms of political, economic and legal processes in global space from an interdisciplinary perspective;
  • Training of analytical skills in order to be able to systematically and exemplarily identify the points of contact and intersection of economic, political and legal forms of integration;
  • Analysis and evaluation of the - partly contradicting, partly complementary - course of international integration / disintegration and the economic, political and legal aspects of globalization.


Focus

In the first semester you will acquire important basics in subjects that were not the focus of your first degree and then specialize in relevant areas in the disciplines of economics or political science. Part of the program is also a research-oriented college and an international internship.

CAREER PROSPECTS

The Master’s degree in Political Integration and Economic Globalization is research-oriented. It opens up the possibility of dealing with central scientific controversies - about suitable theories, methods and empirical data for analyzing specific facts. Through the imparting of specialist knowledge and the international internship, the students should be qualified for specific professional fields (e.g. work in ministries and public administrations, international and European organizations, parties and associations, NGOs, media). In addition, the course should enable students to conduct independent research after completing their master’s thesis and / or to take up a doctoral degree.

Activities suitable for training (research, planning and organization, political advice, etc.) are possible, for example, in the following professional fields:

  • European institutions (e.g. European Commission, European Parliament),
  • International organizations
    National authorities
  • Associations, parties and trade unions,
  • European and international public / civil society (e.g. media, think tanks),
  • International business companies,
  • Science (e.g. university, research institutions).

Through targeted profile formation, the selection of elective modules, the international internship and, in particular, the master's thesis, qualifications can be acquired in these professional fields. Intensive advice and support from the professors of the departments involved ensure a high level of professional and professional training.
