Bachelor’s programme in Economy and Society

BSc in Economy and Society | 3 years | 180 credits

Programme structure

The programme starts by introducing basic concepts and theories within central areas of the programme, including general skills such as for example working in teams, academic writing, and oral presentations.

The courses that follow after the first semester add additional perspectives and models that provide further, in depth insights into the practical and theoretical areas that are related to the broad field of Economy and Society. This is combined with further training in more practical skills such as written and oral presentations.

You can customise semester 5 according to your own preferences.

As a final part of the programme, you will conduct your own research and demonstrate the ability to independently apply the different ideas and theories introduced by the different courses. This will result in a bachelor’s degree project (thesis).
