The master’s programme in Economics at the WWU Münster extends over four semesters and is a follow-on to a BA course. Students can embark on the MA programme either in the summer or in the winter semester. They have to deepen their theoretical knowledge of micro- and macroeconomics. They can specialise not only in the classical domains of economic policy, public finance, econometrics and statistics, but also in resource and energy economics, transport economics, sports economics, and business cooperation. The first three semesters are given over to lectures, seminars and tutorials. The third semester, however, may be spent abroad. The fourth semester is reserved for project-centred learning and the MA thesis.
