What is a Double Degree Programme?
The double degree MSc Development Economics/ MSc Economics and
Development is jointly offered by two universities, the University of Göttingen
and the University of Florence. This means that you acquire two degrees, which
if earned separately, would take four years of studies. In the double degree
programme, you spend two semesters at each university, and write your thesis at
the guest university, in this case, Florence. The master's thesis is recognized
for both Degrees.
Once you finish your coursework (ten courses in Göttingen and a further six in Florence) and thesis, you will be awarded two degrees, which both state that you acquired your degree within the framework of a double degree.
