The Bachelor's degree in Education and Teaching is aimed at students interested in a career in teaching at primary schools OR at intermediate schools and German lower secondary schools. The Bachelor's degree course qualifies students to enter a profession. Professional qualification, particularly for activities within the professional fields of education associated with school and non-school education in the pre-school, primary and secondary I sectors, is based on the acquisition of well-founded academic skills related to English, the respective combination subject and to Educational Sciences. The course of study is divided into two teaching subjects, whereby English must be chosen as one of the subjects for the later career goal of TEACHING AT PRIMARY SCHOOLS, unless German or Mathematics is chosen as an alternative. In the case of the later career goal of TEACHING AT INTERMEDIATE SCHOOLS AND GERMAN LOWER SECONDARY SCHOOLS, the study of English is compulsory unless German, French (only possible with focus on German lower secondary schools), Art, Mathematics, Music or Physics is chosen as an alternative. Depending on the respective career goal, English can be combined with the subjects of Biology (career goal of teaching at intermediate schools and German lower secondary schools only), German, Protestant Religion, French (career goal of teaching at German lower secondary schools only), History (career goal of teaching at intermediate schools and German lower secondary schools only), Islamic Religion, Catholic Religion, Art, Mathematics, Music, Physics, General Studies (career goal of teaching at primary schools only), Sport or Textile Design. The course of study with the core curriculum (KCL-BEU) also includes an inter-disciplinary professional qualification area that must be completed. The course of study involves two placements of at least nine weeks in total.
