The focus of the degree course Education in Europe (M.A.) is the examination of extracurricular education in and through Europe. You can choose between the focal points 'Education in childhood and adolescence' and 'Education in adulthood'. In addition to the research-based examination of extracurricular educational processes, an internship enables you to engage in an action-based examination and reflection of the conditions of pedagogical action in specific contexts. The elective subjects (European Studies, Sociology, Economics of Education, Philosophy of Education, Media Education, Counselling and Organisational Psychology) take into account the interdisciplinary and international orientation.

Admission requirements

For the MA Education in Europe, certain requirements apply: 1) successful completion of the BA in Educational Sciences of the EUF with the specialisation option "Non-School-Related Educational Sciences" or 2.) a completed equivalent degree of at least 6 semesters from a university or university of applied sciences in an accredited course; here at least 80 CP or ECTS points must be demonstrated in the field of Educational Sciences/Education. If this cannot be clearly demonstrated, the decision on whether external degrees are equivalent is made by the Admissions Committee. Applicants who have not obtained a German-language university entrance qualification or a German-language certificate of academic degree must also provide evidence of sufficient German language proficiency (“Test of German as a Foreign Language” (TestDaF), “German Language Test for Admission to Higher Education for Foreign Students” (DSH), each at level C1).
