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 second 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.
