The course serves to prepare the future Greek teacher at the grammar school for a career. In the master’s course, didactic and educational skills are primarily taught. In doing so, emphasis is placed on a meaningful interlinking of theory and practice. At the same time, the subject-specific skills acquired in the Bachelor’s degree are further deepened (linguistics and literature).


The teaching master’s course with subject 1 Ancient Greek is studied with subject 2, whereby the teaching-related subject combination is specified by the previous bachelor’s degree.

The modules in the table below are expanded by modules from the other subject. The educational science modules listed in the table are completed once, regardless of the core subject and the range of modules.

The structure and course of the course are regulated by the course regulations. 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 examination performances of the modules and the master’s 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.

The master's thesis can be completed in the specialist field, in educational science or in the subject didactics of subject 1 or 2 and should show that the students are able to independently work on and present a research task using scientific methods. After successfully completing the study program, the university degree Master of Education (M.Ed.) is awarded.
