DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

Today, mathematics counts as a key technology. Intellectual capability and rigour, logical argumantation and an analytical approach to the resolution of problems are increasingly called for in a number of career fields. Hence, corresponding qualifications are prerequisite for the design and delivery of modern mathematics teaching in secondary schools.
Students receive a preparation for careers as teachers at state schools (Lehramt). Alternatively, studies are also suitable for non-school career areas which require a sound grounding in mathematics, the sciences, or engineering.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

The programme is designed primarily for students intending to become teachers of mathematics as well as a subsidiary subject at secondary schools.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

Graduates qualify for admittance to the Master of Education program and a Referendariat period [mandatory school teaching practice] in the following subjects:

  • Gymnasien und Oberschulen
  • Berufsbildende Schulen
  • Inklusive Pädagogik/Sonderpädagogik an Gymnasien und Oberschulen (Der M.Ed.-Studiengang „Lehramt für Inklusive Pädagogik an Gymnasien/Oberschulen“ wird zurzeit noch nicht angeboten und wird für die ersten Bachelor-Absolvent*innen eingerichtet.)

More informations on the offered courses for the teaching profession at public schools can be found here.

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates qualify for admittance to a Master’s Program in the disciplines:

  • Master of Science Mathematics
  • Master of Science Industrial Mathematics

To acquire the qualification to teach at state schools, students must subsequently obtain a Master of Education postgraduate degree (M.Ed). This has to be followed by an 18-month period of practice teaching in school, which ends with the second state exam for teachers in Germany.

Supplementary/optional courses
The Certificate Program Foundation Studies in Digital Media for Education is an optional course for students studying education related subjects.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS OF PROGRAM

Detailed list of available courses in online course prospectus

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

Students of mathematics receive a sound grounding in basic mathematical disciplines such as algebra, analysis, geometry and stochastics, together with the following key competences:
• ability to think in an analytical and structured manner,
• ability to provide inductive reasoning,
• ability to model a given set of circumstances,
• ability to solve problems with the aid of mathematical tools,
• ability to formulate and explain mathematical facts.

Major fields

Students should decide as early as possible whether they wish to pursue careers as secondary-school teachers (Lehramt), or in an alternative area, and choose their respective programme areas. Corresponding specialisations and in-depth knowledge can be pursued in the compulsory elective modules.

General studies

General Studies account for 10 - 25% of the study programme. These courses train key competences for subsequent career fields. By building their own individual specialities, students are able to shape and amplify their academic profile.

Education science

In this programme area, subject-related studies in the field of teacher training are supplemented with courses dealing with teaching practice. This programme area comprises 13 - 23 % of studies in the field of teacher training, depending on the type of school envisaged. It encompasses the following topics: studies in education, subject didactics, internships and key qualifications.

Practical

Students on the Bachelor programme studying mathematics as a major with a subsidiary subject and intending to become teachers at state secondary schools must undertake three six-week periods of teaching practice. These periods comprise the practical career orientation (following the 1st semester), a work experience with a pedagogical focus (as a rule following their 4th semester) and finally a work experience teaching the subject (as a rule following their 5th semester).
Students of mathematics other than trainee teachers do not need to undertake any period of practical work experience.
