The educational sciences course with a Master of Arts degree at the Technical University of Darmstadt reflects pedagogy in connection with current social developments. It is important to ask questions about why and how the educational sciences themselves are determined by society and are involved in social changes. The graduates of the degree program have dealt with the discipline of educational sciences to an appropriate extent, they know the specifics and limits, they are methodologically profiled and have in-depth knowledge and action skills as well as critical reflective skills.
Using the institute's research profiles, it is possible to create a profile, for example in the areas of education, media and culture, or vocational and corporate training.
The course enables students to conduct research work based on a sound knowledge of scientific paradigms, a disciplinary self-image and the use of scientific methods. The students learn to take up complex scientific questions, to penetrate them in a problem-conscious manner, to work with scientific methods and to develop reflective solutions. In accordance with the principles of study and teaching at TU Darmstadt, the study objectives focus primarily on specialist knowledge based on in-depth basic knowledge that is oriented towards current research questions.
After completing your degree, you will find a variety of career opportunities. Experiences already gained through internships and corresponding references often play an important role when starting a career, as they can show a special professional profile.
The Master of Arts in Educational Sciences course qualifies in particular for science-related or science-based activities. These can be found in universities and research institutions, but also, for example, in extracurricular education and upbringing, e.g. in adult education (e.g. at adult education centers, institutions for (vocational) further education), political parties and associations. Pedagogues also find employment in the field of advice (e.g. parenting, marriage, business advice).
It is therefore important, in addition to studying, to gather your own practical experience in relevant institutions at an early stage, to prove your general suitability for practice and to establish contacts. The prospect of a good position is increased by the willingness to move professionally, also abroad. A good command of the English language is particularly recommended if you have an international focus.
