The major theme of the programme is the analysis of individual and collective decisions which will be studied from the perspective of the three disciplines involved. Students will learn how to combine insights from political science, economics and philosophy in order to solve decision problems arising in such diverse areas as politics, corporate governance, international relations and others.
The programme is research-oriented and aims to provide a thorough and rigorous training in modern theories and methods in political science, economics and philosophy.
In the first three semesters students attend disciplinary courses in political science, economics and philosophy as well as interdisciplinary seminars in economics and political science or philosophy.
The fourth semester is devoted to the Master's thesis.
Part-time studies are possible under special circumstances.
