  • Law, which deals with the constitutional principles of the EU, the sources and application of EU law, as well as the legal structure of the internal market and the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and other constitutional courts in the EU.
  • Economics, which covers the principles of economic governance in the EU, i. e. economic, monetary and financial aspects of the EU, and includes analyses of the EU's internal market against the backdrop of economic globalization, and the international trade regime;
