DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

In combination with a two-semester Master's programme, the subject of study 'Elementary General Studies' (Sachunterricht) trains students for teaching careers in primary schools as well as non-school occupations in the field of elementary education.

In addition, pupils receive a preparation for subjects taught at a later stage of their schooling.
Elemetary General Studies is an interdsiciplinary subject of study. Students choose between area programmes including courses in the natural sciences and engineering, focusing on biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, earth sciences - or the social sciences with the subjects history, politics, and geography.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

Depending on students' choice of school specialisation, the Bachelor programme 'Specialist Education' ('Bildungswissenschaften des Primar- und Elementarbereichs') trains students as teachers for the age groups 3 to 16 years in the elementary area of education, in day nursery as well as for primary and secondary schools (supervision) and in other non-school educational institutions.
