If you are interested in writing a paper or thesis with our department, please contact the secretary's office for an appointment with Dr. Christoph Bühren.

Current thesis topics

We encourage our students to conduct their own little (online) experiments or data collections on "natural experiments". For this, the most suitable subject areas are behavioral economics, environmental economics, and sports economics. You are welcome to approach us with your own ideas or to pick up ideas from  Dr. Christoph Bühren.

For theoretical assignments, especially papers on the history of economics, please contact Dr. Eduard Braun.

An excerpt of topics previously assigned by the Department can be found here.
