School of Economics

Wellcoming the visitors of the website of the Faculty of Economic and Political Sciences of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, we aim to offer useful information regarding the profile of the Faculty, our programmes of study, the academic and research output of its members, the initiatives and prospects of its constituent Schools.
The School of Political and Economic Sciences was one of the first academic units that marked the foundation of the University of Thessaloniki in 1925. In particular, the School started its operation during the 1928-9 academic year, while, up until 1971, its programme of study comprised the academic fields of Economic and Political Science, within the framework of the Faculty of Law and Economic Sciences.
With the restructuring of studies in 1971, Political Science was incorporated as a field of study within the School of Law, while Economic Sciences constituted the focus of the School of Economic Sciences.
In 1999, a School of Political Sciences was founded, which started receiving students during the 2000-1 academic year and became the third School within the framework of the Faculty of Law, Economic and Political Sciences.
The 2013 restructuring of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki led to the creation of a Faculty of Economic and Political Sciences comprised by the three Schools of Economic Sciences, Political Sciences and Journalism & Mass Media.
The respective scientific fields of our three Schools converge in creating the distinct profile of the Faculty as the Social Sciences Faculty of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. At the same time, the Faculty hosts cutting-edge research and teaching in contemporary orientations in the sub-fields of Economic Theory and Policy, Economic Development, Management, Political Theory and Philosophy, Political Analysis, Journalism and Communication.
The distinct educational, scientific, research and social activities of the Faculty, as well as useful information on day-to-day matters, can be found in the web-pages of the three separate Schools, facilitating the effective communication with the visitors and users of our website.
