Bachelor and master theses

We supervise bachelor and master theses in German and English language on a range of issues related to international economic policy, development economics, environmental economics, political economy and applied labor economics.

Bachelor theses:
Here you find a list of suggested topics. All topics refer to current literature in economics and require students to read and discuss empirical or theoretical papers (in the area of expertise of our team members). If you have a very specific topic in mind and are convinced that our team would be the best fit for supervising it, do not hesitate to contact us.

Master theses: We mainly supervise empirical (data) projects on selected issues. All master students are expected to present their research results in the Internal Research Seminar. (We only consider literature studies as an exception and only on topics that are directly commissioned by us and are relevant for our research.) If you are interested in working with us, please approach us directly.
