Brief Description

Bachelor of Education + Master of Education -> Teaching at Vocational Schools

The programme Teaching at Vocational Schools at the TU Darmstadt consists of two connected study programmes:

  • first, the Bachelor of Education programme (6 semesters; vocational field of study) and
  • subsequently, the Master of Education programme (4 semesters; subject of general education/subject studies).

Only the completion of both the Bachelor of Education AND the Master of Education is equivalent to the first state examination in the state of Hesse and therefore mandatory for the admission to the preparatory period (teaching practice) or the teaching profession.

Additionally, from winter semester 2018/19 on programmes for a third subject (Ergänzungsstudium Lehramt) are scheduled to take effect.

1. Vocational Field of Study:
The vocational field of study Chemical Engineering in the Bachelor of Education programme is divided into a Subject-specific Mandatory and a Subject-specific Elective Subject Area, and teaching methodology.

The Subject-specific Mandatory Subject Area comprises the areas of specialisation General, Inorganic-analytical, Inorganic, Physical, Organic, and Technical Chemistry. The Subject-specific Elective Subject Area allows the students to choose their own area of focus within the programme. The Mandatory Subject Area of Teaching Methodology consists of technical teaching methodology, a study project, basic Laboratory Courses.

2. Second Subject of General Education (Subject Studies and Subject-related Didactics):
During the Bachelor’s programme, the students already choose their second subject, which will be integrated into the Bachelor’s programme with 20 CP. This second subject will then be continued in the Master of Education programme.

3. The Pedagogy and Social Sciences consist of Vocational Pedagogy, Vocational Education, and the Practical Studies in Schools 1.

As mathematical knowledge is very important for the study programme, the Fachbereich (Department) organises a Mathematik-Vorkurs (supporting mathematics course for beginners).

Alternatively/additionally it is recommended that beginners participate in the online mathematics pre-course offered by the Department of Mathematics.

The study programme starts with the Orientierungswoche (OWO) (orientation event) at the beginning of the first semester.

With the Bachelor of Education, the students will acquire their first professional qualification. However, the Master of Education is a prerequisite for the admission to the teaching profession.
For this reason, it is recommended that students complete a Master’s degree.
