The Master’s Program in Life Science Economics and Policy

The Master’s program in Life Science Economics and Policy was launched in the winter semester of 2013.

Global challenges like food security, climate change, environmental degradation, and the growing demand for energy, food and raw materials are current topics requiring innovative solutions with appropriate regulatory frameworks and policies. Accordingly, this program integrates issues of economics and policy with the life sciences, and equips graduates with in-depth knowledge to work on, inter alia, these important societal challenges.

The program entails a core number of compulsory subjects. Students may choose electives from a wide range of subjects both in the social and natural sciences, are required to go on an excursion organised by the university, and to either do a research project or an internship. The program concludes with the writing of a thesis, and a colloquium. Students are required to pass subjects equivalent to at least 120 credits (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System).

The language of instruction is English, and students may also integrate studying abroad at a partner university to the program.
