Integration

The courses with their domain specific origin are differently positioned to develop skills in understanding and analysing as well as creating and applying.
• Understanding and analysing are addressed by discussing the theoretical foundations of the domains and fundamental methods.
• Creating and applying are developed by theory building and developing tools to analyse specific social and economic phenomena.

The following table indicates which skills are developed in the different courses. The main skills are highlighted and the table is not meant to be complete, but illustrative. For the specific content of each individual course please refer to the individual syllabus.

Research Domain Integration:
The integration of the three research domains is implemented on the course level. This integration enables students to achieve the necessary in depth knowledge about their research domain while learning about related domains to formulate creative and novel research questions.

The following table indicates the connection of topics covered in the courses with the three research domains. It is a collection of topics that is not meant to be complete, but illustrative. For the specific content of each individual course please refer to the individual syllabus.
