Main Content

The main focus on the master's level is on equipping students with the tools to design their own (experimental) research projects and critically reflect on the limitations and merits of science.

The lecture Behavioral Economics and Sustainability conveys important theories and the accompanying exercise is built around the task to draft a research proposal. You might also want to visit the blog accompanying the course on https://behavioraldevelopmentblog.wordpress.com/

In Experimental Economics, students learn about the details of good experimental designs and will be asked to write their own design.

In Sustainable Development varying challenging topics of Sustainability are discussed and students learn the method of Impact Evaluation in the exercise sessions.
