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).
  • The two subjects are supplemented by the educational and social sciences with the practical school studies 1 and the didactics of the subjects.

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.
