study content

This degree programme is aimed at teacher training students and Bachelor graduates who want to further develop their subject didactic competences. Students choose two subjects from the subject didactics German, English, History, Art Education and Political Education. In both subjects, the programme is divided into three module groups: teaching issues, teaching/learning research and subject didactic teaching competences. In addition, there is a profiling area in which students acquire knowledge of further subject didactic and subject-specific focal points.

Application Documents

Admission requirements:

  1. A Bachelor's degree or other academic degree acquired at home or abroad at an academic university with a standard period of study of at least six semesters. For at least one of the two selected subject didactics, relevant subject didactic, subject-related or educational science competences must be available, usually to the extent of a minor subject (60 LP).
  2. Alternatively: First state examination (or comparable M.Ed. teaching degree) for a teaching profession at public schools, whose subject specialisation contains relevant subject didactic, subject-related or educational science competences, as a rule to the extent of a minor subject (60 LP), for at least one of the two chosen subject didactics.

  4. Language skills: Two foreign languages at level "B1" CEFR. One of the foreign languages may be Latin. The Latinum, the Latin examination of the Faculty of Philology and History of the University of Augsburg or equivalent achievements (e.g. achieved in a foreign educational system) are considered as proof of knowledge of Latin. Applicants in the subject English should prove language skills to the extent of level "B2" by the end of the 1st semester at the latest.
  5. German language skills: For applicants who have not acquired their study qualification at a German-speaking institution, the required knowledge of the German language is to be proven by the DSH examination level 2 or the TestDaF level 4.

Two subjects must be chosen from the following:

    Didactics of German Language and Literature (= D)
    Didactics of English (= E)
    Didactics of History (= G)
    Art Education (= K)
    Didactics of Political Education (= P).

 

The study in the chosen subjects takes place in the three sub-areas or module groups:

  • The sub-area of mediation issues is taught in the form of advanced seminars as an in-depth study of exemplary topics related to the current state of research.
  • The sub-discipline of teaching/learning research consists of subject-related colloquia and seminars on research methods.
  • The sub-discipline of subject didactic teaching skills is taught in a combination of an internship and practical teaching courses.

 

The internship takes place either in the form of a school internship in one subject or at extracurricular institutions, here also in both subjects. In a profiling area, the students choose modules with subject didactic and, if applicable, subject scientific focal points.
