Overview

Overview

Graduates of the bachelor's degree program have basic specialist knowledge and a basic general education in physics. They master different experimental and theoretical approaches to physical problems, know the central concepts and the structural and content-related relationships between the sub-areas of physics, have basic knowledge of the history and development of physics and have become familiar with exemplary methods and issues of modern physical research.

The bachelor's degree in physics for teachers provides basic physics-related specialist knowledge and working methods as well as interdisciplinary techniques of physical work and problem-solving. This is done on selected topics in experimental and theoretical physics. The subject of the bachelor's degree is also systematic, methodical and practical laboratory aspects of experimental and theoretical physics.

The ability to think scientifically, to make critical judgments, to act responsibly as well as to communicate and cooperate is taught. Graduates are familiar with the basic scientific working methods and practical skills that qualify for a professional activity and for advanced, especially teaching-related master’s courses. This also applies to practical experience with experimentation techniques and measurement methods.

Program Structure

Physics as a core subject with the option to become a teacher is studied with a 60 CP module that is suitable for the desired teaching position and the subject of teaching related vocational science (LBW). Physics as a 60 CP module offering with a teacher training option must be combined with a suitable 90 CP core subject with a teaching training option and the teaching profession-related vocational studies (LBW) study area.

In the core subject of physics, at the end of the course there is an exemplary deepening and differentiation of a selected field of study through independent scientific development of a self-selected problem (Bachelor thesis).

The teaching profession-related vocational studies (LBW) study area is a compulsory component of all teaching-related Bachelor degree programs. It consists of two educational modules, the module German as a second language and two subject didactic modules. Part of one educational science module is a school internship lasting several weeks.

The course regulations regulate the structure and process of the course. It contains detailed descriptions of the content and qualification goals of each individual module and an exemplary course plan. The examination regulations define the type and requirements of the module examination. In the regulations, the credit points (CP) for each module or event as well as the workload in hours for the entire course are specified.

Career Prospects

The bachelor's degree in physics for teaching qualifies for advanced, in particular teaching-related master’s degree programs. Teaching at public schools in the State of Berlin is only possible for Bachelor graduates with a teaching degree option with a relevant teaching degree (Master of Education).

Due to the acquired basic knowledge as well as the ability to solve problems and to recognize connections, the graduates have access to other fields of activity in business and society in addition to the field of physical education. In addition to teaching at schools, there are also employment opportunities in industry (technological area) or in the service sector for scientific and technical applications. Physics graduates can also work in liberal professions, e.g. B. work as science journalists or editors. A master’s degree and, if applicable, a doctorate are prerequisites for management positions or employment in research and teaching.
