In the senior classes the topics of the political and social system of the Federal Republic of Germany, questions about international politics and the securing of peace are dealt with as well as as the topics of the EU and the topics about economic policies. As part of 14-day-long internship, questions about entrepreneurial behaviour are clarified.
