In this master’s degree course, students can expand and deepen the skills and didactics acquired in the bachelor’s degree in the previous bachelor’s core subject French, in language acquisition and in education with a clearly job-related focus.

Students acquire central oral and written skills in the target language for school and teaching, they deal with literature and media at a high academic level and improve their ability to apply methods of modern linguistics to various texts and discourses. They acquire in-depth knowledge and skills in educational sciences and subject didactics that enable them to analyze, plan and evaluate foreign language teaching and learning processes. In the practical semester, they gain their first action-oriented experience in the job description and thereby expand their ability to systematically reflect on foreign language lessons.


The teaching master’s degree with subject 1 or 2 French is studied with subject 2 or 1, 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 and examination regulations. It contains detailed descriptions of the content and qualification goals of each individual module and an exemplary course plan. It also defines the type and requirements of the examination performance 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.
