The degree programme prepares students for the teaching profession at secondary schools. The focus is on deepening the content of educational science, subject science and subject didactics. The study programme focuses in a special way on the learning field of career orientation and career guidance. Here, the students are enabled to tap into the career development opportunities of their students and to promote them in a targeted manner. In order to adequately prepare students for independent, responsible and well-founded teacher training, Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg focuses on practice-oriented teacher training. In an extensive part of school practice (practical school studies, practical semester), both in terms of time and content, what has been learned in university studies is practically tested and reflected upon. The academic degree "Master of Education" entitles the holder to a doctorate.
The main purpose of the Master's degree is to qualify graduates to work as teachers in secondary schools. They have the skills to also 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 economic education research are also possible.
