Departments of Philosophy and of Economics of Bayreuth University (Germany) have launched in 2014 a MA programme: “Philosophy & Economics”.
The Bayreuth MA Programme in Philosophy & Economics is organised and taught by both the departments of philosophy and economics. It is a unique two-year course of studies offering a rigorous and demanding graduate level education in core areas of economics and core areas of philosophy especially relevant to economics. The Programme is taught entirely in English.
The programme is targeted at students with an interest in obtaining an advanced analytical and quantitative training as a foundation for pursuing research-based careers in academia, public service, and business. In designing the degree we had in mind economists and philosophers as well as those with political scientists or those with a background in business or management studies who are intent on sharpening their abilities in normative reflection, on deepening of their knowledge of subjects they have pursued during their Bachelor’s studies, and on broadening and enhancing their methodological skills in key areas relevant to both disciplines.
