In this master’s course, students can expand and deepen the skills acquired in their bachelor’s degree in specialist science, language acquisition, specialist didactics and educational science with a clearly job-related focus.

The students acquire central oral and written skills in the Italian language for school and teaching, 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 allow them to analyze, plan and evaluate foreign language teaching / learning processes. In the teaching internship, they gain their first action-oriented experience in the professional field and thereby expand their ability to systematically reflect on foreign language teaching.


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

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.
