Art (Teaching Degree)


Students who have the aim of attaining the teaching qualification for primary schools complete their studies in a tiered course structure.Firstly, the Bachelor's degree course "Education and Teaching" at the Universität Osnabrück must be completed or proof provided of an equivalent degree obtained at another university in the appropriate subject, or in a closely related subject with a corresponding teacher-training specialisation. The Master's degree course "Teaching Qualification (primary school level)" builds onto this; the course is oriented towards the professional field of schools and since the winter semester 2014/2015 has been comprised of four semesters. An application is required in any case.A Master's degree is the prerequisite for admission to postgraduate civil service.In the Teaching Qualification degree course, Art is studied in combination with the second teaching subject selected in the Bachelor's degree course.As part of the Master's supplementary course "Complementary Subject for the Teaching Qualification for primary schools" a third teaching subject can be studied. Therefore, in addition to Art and depending on the choice of the second teaching subject, German, English or Mathematics, Protestant Religion, Islamic Religion, Catholic Religion, Mathematics, Music, General Studies (with the specialisation subject Work/Economics, Biology, Geography, History, Physics or Politics), Sport or Textile Design can be studied.In the Master's degree, in addition to the teaching subjects, the teacher training core curriculum (Kerncurriculum Lehrerbildung, KCL) is also mandatory. As part of this, skills in educational science are taught.The Master's degree course includes an 18-week in-school practical phase, which includes both teaching subjects. Together with the in-school practical phase, a research project is completed in one of the two teaching subjects or in Education Science.If, in addition to Art, the chosen subject is English, during registration for the Master's degree examination, proof of a three-month course-relevant stay in a country in which English is the official language must be provided.
