With the four-semester Master of Education (Grundschule), you will continue your education to become a teacher - building on the dual-subject bachelor's degree programme. In the school-type based Master of Education programme, you will acquire extensive knowledge and experience in both educational science and school practice. You will broaden your curricular knowledge in the teaching subjects chosen.
This master's degree programme prepares students for a career in primary school teaching. Students learn and use current research methods with practical relevance within schools in their research project. They also gain practical experience in schools during an 18-week practical course and teach their first lessons.
The regulations are valid up to and including the winter semester of 2025/26. After the winter semester of 2025/26, the amended regulations will also apply to students with studies beginning before the winter semester of 2022/23.
Through diverse modes of instruction and learning (portfolios, presentation days, tutorials), you will learn to conduct independent research at an academic level with professional supervision. Curricular knowledge, subject-specific teaching methods, practical teaching skills and education science-related content are linked closely throughout the programme. The modules 'Inklusion' and 'Schul- und Unterrichtsforschung und ihre Forschungsmethoden' are an important part of this. During the practical phase, students have access to a network of experienced mentors.
The prerequisites above apply to the application. This is an open admissions degree course. Application is only possible in the winter semester for 1st and higher semester. The application deadline for the winter semester is 15th August.
