Overview

Chemistry researches the structures, properties and transformation of substances, in particular the isolation, synthesis and modification of natural substances as well as the synthesis of new substances, in which, with the help of analytical methods, knowledge can be obtained that can be used to manufacture new substances or to convert them into new substances . The main topics are also the acquisition of knowledge about structures and reaction processes in atomic dimensions as well as the theoretical penetration of the observed phenomena by means of quantitative models.

The main components of chemistry are inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. Inorganic chemistry covers all compounds and elements that do not contain carbon compounds. In contrast, organic chemistry only deals with carbon compounds and explains, among other things, their structure and properties. Physical chemistry examines the fundamentals of chemistry such as thermodynamics or kinetics and uses methods from physics and mathematics. These classical chemical subjects are supplemented at the Free University by analytical chemistry, biochemistry, crystallography, macromolecular chemistry, radiochemistry and theoretical chemistry, in which the students can specialize.

 

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

Chemistry for the teaching profession as a core subject is studied with a 60 CP module that is suitable for the desired teaching profession and the study area teaching profession-related professional science (LBW). Chemistry for the teaching profession as a 60 CP module offer must be combined with a core subject with a teaching degree option and the study area teaching profession-related vocational science (LBW).

The study of chemistry for the teaching profession is divided into a compulsory area and an elective area with specialization modules in chemistry and overarching specialization modules.

In the core subject of chemistry for the teaching profession, at the end of the course the exemplary deepening and differentiation of a field of study takes place through the 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's 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 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 module exams. 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.
