Bachelor’s Programs and State Examination


Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) – 1 field degree program

How do governments, banks, companies, currencies and households function? Do they act independently of one another or do they influence one another? Who decides on the distribution of scarce resources? When you look for an answer to these questions, you soon realize that the decisions of one economic subject (government, bank, company or household) depends on the decisions of another.

Are you interested in these connections? Would you like to gain insight into the many aspects of the economy? Are you confident in mathematics?

On the one hand, economics studies how individual actors, such as companies, consumers, and employees interact on markets. The objective is to understand and analyze the complex interactions, events, and results of market activities in complex modern societies from the perspective of a basic understanding of individual behavior.
The second area of economics has to do with the activities of the state in economic and social policy. The main area of interest here is the problems that are (or can be) solved by the actors involved collectively within the context of societal institutions. This includes, for instance, economic orders like the social market economy, social security systems, the supply of public goods, and the regulation of natural monopolies.

Please note:
From the summer semester 2020 on there may be deviations from individual regulations of the admission regulations, selection and entrance examination regulations as well as the study and examination regulations from the Corona Statutes [de].

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
