Short description of the study programme

The study programme Bachelor of Education Höheres Lehramt an beruflichen Schulen mit der beruflichen Fachrichtung Sozialpädagogik / Pädagogik is the first part of a consecutive teacher education programme (Bachelor of Science with consecutive Master of Education) with the professional profile subject social pedagogy / pedagogy and a general secondary subject for higher teaching at professional schools.

Furthermore the didactics and educational science parts together with the school internships offer first professional expertise.

The mathematical part of the study programme B.Ed. is clearly structured and consists entirely of compulsory modules with restricted individual opportunities of choice. In the first year the students acquire the basics of Analysis and Linear Algebra, which are fundamental for all branches of mathematics. Based on this the mathematical knowledge is deepend in the classical field of geometry as well as in the more application related field stochastics. Parallel to the scientific lectures there are associated didactic courses who tackle the basic conceptual question of how to present and teach mathematics.

The Bachelor of Education Lehramt Höheres Lehramt an beruflichen Schulen in mathematics is required for the consecutive study programme Master of Education Höheres Lehramt an beruflichen Schulen in mathematics. The successfull degree of the Bachelor of Education without the associated Master of Education is not sufficient for the admission to the teacher trainee period (Referendariat) and is, therefore, not sufficient to be employed as a teacher at a secondary school in Germany.
