The Master’s Degree in Teaching Law and Economics prepares graduates and professionals who want to access the A-46 Competition Class (Legal-economics disciplines) to teach in upper secondary education institutions.

The course focuses on the teaching and continuous education methods that comply with the deep reform that D. L. no. 36 of 30 of April 2022 brought to the teaching of legal and economy subjects in high schools with methodological, legal and economics specializations. In particular, the measure provides for the mandatory possession of a relevant number of specific credits, not usually offered by the Degrees in Law, Economics or Political Sciences. Therefore, the Master’s single courses are developed taking into account the need to acquire the necessary training credits and the professional specialization in the field of education and teaching.

The Master’s Degree in Teaching Law and Economics  is divided into specific courses, for each one of the three specializationsMethodological, Legal and Economic. The three specialization have a common section and a differentiated one, to meet the needs of all attendees.

The 2022-23 Master’s edition fully complies with the provisions of the recent L.D. no. 36 of 30 April 2022, on teachers’ recruitment, and it includes the option of obtaining the 30 training credits required by the transitory framework (including 8 traineeship credits). Enrolment in one of the specializations comes with the educational activities included in it, and no compensation between the different specializations is allowed.

Among the Master’s distinctive profiles, there is the multidisciplinary and innovative nature of Social Studies and Financial Education Teaching Methods.

The Master’s Degree in Teaching Law and Economics is addressed to graduates with a Master’s Degree in Law, Economics or Political Sciences, or another legal-economic field, who wish to access the A-46 Competition Class (Legal-economics disciplines) to teach in upper secondary education institutions (the main occupational outlet), also by preparing attendees for the competition and for substitute teaching. The course provides all the regulatory credits required for this purpose. Furthermore, the Master entails the possibility of obtaining all 30 mandatory ECTS, (including 12 qualifying and regulatory credits), for methodological training and education on how to teach law and economics. For these purposes, enrolment to the single courses, in the chosen subjects, is allowed. The Master’s degree is specifically addressed also to practising teachers of any subject, who want to get up to date on educational methods and ethical competencies for teaching and training in high schools, or who want to complement their ongoing education with legal and economy competencies.

Lastly, the Master is addressed also to field professionals in the ongoing education and training sector.
