Final Theses

The Chair of Economic Policy and Regulatory Economics supervises the preparation of theses in the fields of economic policy, new political economy and in selected areas of finance and behavioural economics.

You can apply twice a year for supervision at the chair. Application deadlines are 01.03. and 01.09.. In exceptional cases, it is possible to deviate from these deadlines.

Students who have already successfully completed a seminar at the chair will be given preference in the assignment of theses.

There is no assignment of ready-made topics, as the search is part of the thesis. Collected topics can be discussed during office hours.  

For general questions or about thesis supervision, please contact Patrick Hirsch ( or Katharina Pfeil (

For questions regarding the examination regulations, please contact the examination office.

Please also note that the submission must be made in accordance with § 21 Para. 8 of the Framework Examination Regulations and that a corresponding assurance is required on your part.

Here you will find basic information about the supervision of the final theses and the a guide with tips for writing your thesis.
