Pluralist Curriculum

Get pluralist courses credited

The world is facing huge challenges, and your studies of economics remains one-sided and detached from reality? This doesn't have to be that way, since you will soon have the opportunity to take interesting courses at other universities and earn ECTS credit points for them.


The Certificate Project of the „Netzwerk Plurale Ökonomik“ aggregates the courses initiated by students and pluralist universities into a "Plural Curriculum". We support you in organizing your own seminars, in integrating nice online courses & materials into your lecture and in earning credits for your participation in pluralist courses. Here is a short How-To crediting pluralist courses.


 The Pluralist Curriculum in the summer term 2020 

The Cusanus University of Applied Sciences Bernkastel-Kues and the local group for pluralist economics of the Free University of Berlin are opening their lecture series on coronavirus & economic crises this semester to all students who are interested in this content! All details on dates, credits and contact persons you can find in: Plural Curriculum summer term 2020. In addition to creditable courses, there is also a Plural Economics Book Tour and webinars on topics such as post-growth. Both is mostly, but not exclusively in German.


        The Summer Academy for Pluralist Economics 2020

The Summer Academy gives you insights into the perspectives of the various schools of economic thought in the beautiful Neudietendorf in Thuringia once a year. This year it will be held online – but will be equally exciting: The Summer Academy focuses on alternatives to Mainstream economics and perspectives of the Global South. Equally, participants come from all over the world. This year our cooperation allows us to let all participants credit their course at their respective university. Here is an overview of the documents needed for crediting. 


 Pluralist courses with ECTS points at your university

Students can generally organize their own courses, either in the form of lecture series or seminars. All you have to do is find a professor at your university who lets you organize the content yourself. This person will take care of the registration of the course and admission to the lectures (not a lot of work), and together with you, he/she* will design the exercises of the course and correct exams (a little more work).
