German & European Economic Law
The degree program
The Master's degree program is designed for graduates of the Bachelor's degree program in German and European Economic Law (Deutsches und Europäisches Wirtschaftsrecht; DEWR) at the university of Siegen or a different German or foreign university of university of applied sciences. It is based on the knowledge acquired in the Bachelor's degree program DEWR at the University of Siegen and expands this knowledge with specific contents. The degree program is designed as an integrative model. It comprises law (approx. 60 %), business management and economics (approx. 40 %). The education is therefore interdisciplinary.
Students can choose between two focus areas: either "corporate law" or "European and international economic law". In the focus area of "economic law", the legal subjects are combined with selected areas of business management. In the focus area of "European and international economic law", the combination comprises legal subjects as well as the matching lectures from economics. Nearly all lectures forming the last focus area are held in English.
The Master's degree program serves to prepare for the acquisition of the degree Master of Laws (German and European economic law). For this purpose, knowledge in the disciplines of law and economics are taught and their methods and the interdisciplinary interrelations between the two sciences are covered. The students learn how to independently acquire and apply scientific insights. The studies are to teach the required specialist knowledge and methods as well as key qualifications, such as communication and social competences and the ability of acting responsibly, to the students under consideration of the requirements and changes in the professional world so that they are able to economically reflect on them and apply scientific insights and methods and act responsibly in the corresponding professional fields.

Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals/internship rules
Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
