Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and Law
The University of Castilla La Mancha has decided to offer the possibility of studying a double bachelor’s degree in Economics and Law at the Albacete Campus. This project does not imply the development of a new curriculum, but a specific curricular route for the student who would lead to the achievement of both degrees. Therefore, students who wish to access must choose both options in the pre-registration (double degree in Economics and Law and Law and Economics).
This initiative responds to the high level of interest of future students in acquiring a double degree, due to the increasingly globalised and competitive environment in which companies and institutions demand professionals with multidisciplinary knowledge and especialized skills in the areas of Law and Economics.
Knowledge and values
The primary objective of the Double Degree in Economics and Law responds to the need for professionals who are able to provide consulting, management and assessment services regarding the different economic and legal issues involved in organizations in the public administration and organizations in the private sector (companies, domestic economies, associations).
Thus, the double degree aims to facilitate the students’ understanding of the workings of markets, the State, other institutions and society in general. In addition, the complexity of an increasingly globalized economy, where companies have to combine human, material and financial resources in an increasingly competitive and changing environment, “forces” public and private organizations to require professionals who are aware of the numerous relations existing between economic and legal-political reality. In this sense, a double degree that combines legal and economic knowledge allows you to offer comprehensive training to the student.
Number of credits: 378 ECTS
Option 1: If the student chooses internships of the degree in Economics (12 credits) would result in the recognition of internships of the degree of law (6 credits) plus “Regional and Local Finance” (elective subject of 4.5 credits).
Option 2: If the student chooses internships of the Law degree plus the elective subject “Regional and Local Finance” (lLaw degree), it would result in the recognition of internships of the degree in Economics.
Economic and social interests
The profile of new students corresponds to the profiles considered as most appropriate for both degrees. However, a solid grasp of logical, abstract and critical reasoning skills will help improve the learning process of subjects in both disciplines.
In order to gain access to this degree programme, as set out in article 14 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, students must hold a High School Diploma (Bachillerato) or equivalent diploma and must have passed the entry exam described in article 42 of the organic law 6/2001 on universities, amended by law 4/2007 of 12th April, notwithstanding the other access routes established in the current legislation. Any future amendment to the university entrance exams or to the Royal Decree regulating university access will be used as a basis to establish access routes, taking into account the subjects studied and assessed in the High School Diploma (Bachillerato) which are related to the contents of the degree programme.
