The Faculty of Law and Economics
Universitas gryphiswaldensis was founded in 1456, Greifswald University is among the oldest in both Germany and the Baltics. After Germany´s unification, the Faculty of Law, as one of the four founding faculties, was re-established as Faculty of Law and Economics.
With its 26 chairs it covers the area of Law and Business Administration and aims to qualify its 2000 students for high-level careers in businesses and administrations due to sound academic training, promotion of interdisciplinary thinking and international commitment.
The Law program provides the “classic” path (4 years) towards the “Erste Juristische Prüfung”. A three-year Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) including elements of Law, Economics and general academic and professional skills, offers an alternative. A postgraduate program (Tax Law) lead to a Master of Laws (LL.M.).
Courses in Business Administrations cover all areas of Economics. Students may also attend interdisciplinary courses such as “Economics of Health” and “International Business Management” and choose from a variety of offers like rhetoric, psychology, computer science or languages to enrich their program of study. Cooperating with business, administrations and organisations, the Faculty is an important partner for the regional economy of Western Pomerania (“Vorpommern”) and beyond. International cooperation in research, teaching, as well as the exchange of students is important for the Faculty and the University as a whole and essential to create a European Area of Higher Education. As far as Greifswald´s geographical location and traditions are concerned, this is achieved by close cooperation with universities in Scandinavia and the Baltics.
