History & Economics, Master of Arts (M.A.)
The economy is constantly changing. The latest economic crises have taught us that a long-term perspective can help us to better understand changes in the economy. For this reason, the field of economic history has been experiencing a boom over the past several years. More and more experts are needed to analyse complex economic relationships and develop integrative approaches to achieving solutions on the basis of historical experience. The master’s programme History & Economics offers you an interdisciplinary education in history and economics that is currently one-of-a-kind in Germany. This unique combination leads to a career-qualifying degree that enables graduates to start a career in the private sector or continue their postgraduate education.
