The inclusive school should be a place of diversity and emancipatory learning, in which elementary school children, regardless of their individual requirements, acquire the knowledge and skills they need for a responsible participation in social life. This represents a very special challenge for prospective teachers: The subject of the course is not only the acquisition of the technical and methodological basics of teaching, but also, with a view to target-oriented support for the students, the in-depth examination of the special educational content complexes Learning, language and emotional-social development. The specialty here is the focus on learning prerequisites and processes as well as the goal
The teaching-related bachelor's degree for the primary level with a focus on inclusion education consists of four sub-areas: These are first of all the subjects of German and mathematics, as well as educational science and the profile-giving study area of ??inclusion education.
In the subject of German , the focus is on conveying the scientific and didactic-methodological basics of the acquisition of written language, oral language skills and the teaching of literature. They deal with the grammatical specifics of words, sentences and texts and deal with the analysis and interpretation of lyrical, epic and dramatic texts. The subject-didactic part of your training serves to work on method and communication skills with the aim of independently planning, implementing and evaluating teaching units with an inclusive orientation.
The study of mathematics includes the acquisition of the scientific fundamentals of the number system, their representation, patterns and cultural development, their importance for arithmetic as well as elementary geometry and functions. They reflect the relationship between academic discussion and learning content appropriate for elementary school with the perspective of age-appropriate and case-specifically balanced teaching. You will develop the professional skills required to deal with theoretical problems as well as a specific economy of thought and, as part of your didactic studies, you will be entrusted with formulating subject-appropriate horizons of expectation, developing solutions and communicating appropriately.
In the field of educational sciences, the focus is on studying and critically reflecting on current primary school pedagogical approaches and theories with the aim of developing a primary level-specific competence profile - after all, teaching primary school children requires different requirements than working with adolescents. They deal with a broad spectrum of application-oriented educational and didactic forms of action, acquire the diagnostic tools to be able to evaluate findings from empirical teaching research and the knowledge necessary for the selection and design of learning materials.
The Inclusive Education study area comprises the teaching of basic educational, psychological, diagnostic and medical content and is expanded to include the discussion of ethical and anthropological problems. You will learn the models, theories and concepts that are essential for dealing professionally with children in need and acquire the didactic and social skills necessary for working with heterogeneous groups.
In addition to traditional subject-related training, students should receive detailed knowledge of theoretical and empirical research on all aspects of inclusion. In a young, interdisciplinary, and growing field, it is important for students to learn how to conduct and interpret research on a national and international level so that they can plan, carry out and evaluate evidence-based practice in inclusive education. Students learn how to create an inclusive environment to support and encourage optimal learning for children with different abilities and backgrounds. They learn about the obstacles children face and acquire strategies that help them to overcome such obstacles in the school context in order to expand educational opportunities for all children.
Inclusive thinking and acting requires students to develop the ability to more deeply reflect, observe and understand their own pedagogical views and attitudes. In order to achieve this, the students are introduced to national and international literature from different academic disciplines, they get to know scientific and methodological approaches in educational research and related areas, and they discuss how to apply theory and research knowledge to child development and to learning in the classroom can. In addition, they learn basic statistics and research methods in order to be able to critically evaluate information from empirical journal articles as well as from everyday information sources such as newspapers, reports, or online materials.
The bachelor's degree has a modular structure. Within the modules, the course content is thematically summarized in different study and teaching forms. A fixed number of credit points as well as certain study and examination achievements must be achieved in each module.

Teaching at a primary school means much more than imparting knowledge, because the educational aspect in particular is much more pronounced in this type of school and presents you with the challenge of developing your emotional and social skills. Working in an inclusive environment requires increased sensitivity to social diversity, the needs of children and overarching social conflict situations. Enjoyment in dealing with children and, if necessary, initial experience in the educational field are therefore a good basis for choosing a Bachelor's degree.
The aim of your studies is to acquire professional, level-specific teaching and parenting skills for children from heterogeneous groups and with different educational needs in elementary school age. You will be prepared for conveying essential specialist content in the areas of German and mathematics, empathetic pedagogical support, cooperation, advice and diagnosis-based support planning within the framework of the inclusive school.
With the teaching profession-related bachelor's degree you acquire the academic degree of the Bachelor of Education. This represents a first professional academic degree, which, however, does not yet qualify for the assumption of a teaching post. A master’s degree and preparatory service still have to be completed before you can become a teacher.
