educational studies are entitled to examine the possibility of compensating for these differences by means of individual study plans. If this is not feasible, conditions can be imposed in order to complete missing study and examination achievements in addition to the standard period of study of the Master's programme. This can extend the study programme by a maximum of one semester.

Objectives

The degree programme prepares students for the teaching profession at grammar schools. The focus is on deepening the content of educational science, subject-specific science and subject-specific didactics. Compared to the teacher training programme for secondary schools, the programme is characterised by its higher subject-specific content. In the chosen teaching subjects, a higher degree of specialisation, complexity and abstraction as well as a stronger research orientation is implemented. In order to adequately prepare teachers for independent, responsible and well-founded teaching, Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg focuses on practice-oriented teacher training. In an extensive school practice component (practical school studies, practical semester), both in terms of time and content, what has been learned in the university studies is practically tested and reflected upon. The academic degree "Master of Education" entitles the holder to a doctorate.

Career Perspectives

The Master's degree mainly serves as a teaching qualification for graduates to work as teachers at grammar schools. They have the skills to work as a research assistant at universities or educational institutes or to take on consulting and development activities in the teaching materials sector (textbooks, technical documentation, experimental systems, laboratory concepts, etc.), including new media. Tasks in the field of technical educational research are also possible.

Competencies and Interests Required

The successful completion of the Master's degree is the prerequisite for eligibility for admission to the state preparatory service for the teaching profession at grammar schools. Interest in teaching the subject of technology or economics in combination with another teaching subject, working with young people and teaching and research in the field of an interesting educational field of activity are expected
