The Master’s programme at a glance
The Master’s programme offers a wide range of electives in both the economic and technical fields which allow students scope to design their own courses and require them to draw up their own, personal study plan.
Law and Economics | Compulsory Electives B | 6 CP
From a wide-ranging list, students choose a module in which to specialise “to a certain extent”. The lectures/seminars are held over a period of two semesters. The examination taken at the end of the module is usually oral. Once the first examination has been taken in the module selected, the module must be completed. The valid list of compulsory electives is published at the beginning of each semester (see below: Documents on the course).
Law and Economics | Specialisation | 12 CP
From a list of specialisation options, which is drawn up by one or more subject areas, students are free to choose a specialisation (12 CP). The lectures/seminars are held over a period of two semesters. The examination taken at the end of the module is usually oral.

Master’s Thesis and Programme Assignment | 15 CP + 15 CP
The Master’s thesis is a final dissertation (normally taking three months). In addition, students complete a graded course assignment (three months). If the course assignment addresses a topic from the field of Law and Economics, students must choose a topic from the field of Civil Engineering for their Master’s thesis and vice versa. If a examiner tutors the final dissertation/course assignment, it can be undertaken externally (e.g. in cooperation with a company). Please take careful note of our detailed Information on final papers.
