Which prior knowledge is required?
The Master in Public Economics is not an interdisciplinary study program. A solid, in-depth education in the field of Economics is required. You should therefore have completed relevant courses in all of the following areas during your previous studies:
- Economic policy
- Economic Mathematics (or equivalent)
If you have not graduated with an Economics Bachelor's, you are still encouraged to apply.
Basic knowledge in Econometrics is indispensable for a successful completion of the program
Our experience has shown that undergraduates from other disciplines often lack sufficient knowledge in Econometrics to successfully complete our mandatory module Applied Microeconometrics. Should you have acquired little or no Econometrics knowledge during your bachelor studies, we recommend you to prepare for this course independently and also take complementary courses offered at FU.
