The Master of Education Vocational Schools program at the University of Erfurt deepens a successfully completed course of study in one of the professional fields of civil engineering, electrical engineering, metal technology, health, care, personal hygiene or social pedagogy and in one of the general education subjects German, English, ethics, Protestant religious doctrine, French, Catholic religious doctrine, mathematics, social studies or sport.
The teacher training program at the vocational school is divided into three areas:
Educational science area
- In the field of educational science, students acquire knowledge about the social prerequisites of vocational schools, teaching and professional teacher training, about the design of vocational teaching and learning processes as well as the development and promotion of individual educational processes, and are given an introduction to vocational science.
Special didactic area
- In the subject didactic area, you will acquire subject and school type related knowledge and skills on processes of teaching and learning and on the theory-based planning, implementation and evaluation of teaching in the chosen professional field as well as in a teaching subject. In doing so, you will develop both the practical field of teaching at vocational schools and areas of extra-curricular educational practice.
Special scientific area
- They supplement and deepen subject-specific content in a general subject (German, English, French, ethics, Protestant or Catholic religious education, social studies, sport, mathematics).
Our alumni work primarily as teachers at state and private vocational schools (e.g. vocational school teachers). The degree qualifies for the second phase of teacher training, the so-called "Vorbereitungsdienst" (internship).
