Orientations: Economics & Law
Are you interested in economics and law? Do you want to learn more about social economics, business practice and entrepreneurship? Do you want a solid base from which to continue your studies? If you do, the Economics Programme may be for you.
The Economics Programme is a course leading to eligibility for higher education studies, focusing on social economics, business economics and Law. You will also read subjects that are studied in all lines of Gymnasium (upper secondary school); English, history, sport & health, natural science, social studies and Swedish.
The course will prepare you well for further studies in economics, law and other areas of social science at higher education level. You will learn more about, for example, economic factors in society, trade between countries and the roles and responsibilities of companies in a globalised world.
The programme offers two orientations.
Here, you will learn basics of business economics: marketing, accounting and costing, together with leadership and organisation. You also learn what running your own business involves - how to start up, develop, manage and close down a business.
If you choose the Law orientation, you get to study the importance of the legal system in a democratic society, and how it is influenced by international law. You will develop your capacity to analyse and make a judgement on legal issues, using legal sources and legal procedures.
In Year 3, you get to carry out an independent Gymnasium project to prepare you for higher education studies, above all, in economics or law. For this, you will have to formulate an issue and plan, execute and evaluate a major project based on the central areas of knowledge in the programme.
What career options will you have?
On completion of your studies, you will obtain a qualification giving eligibility for higher education studies. You will have the basic eligibility for higher education studies and so will be able to go on to graduate in economics (Bachelor’s or Master’s degree level), marketing, teaching, social analysis, law or accounting.
