Programme Structure

Subject-Didactic and Practical School Studies

Teaching practice and application in schools are at the focus of studies during the first two semesters. Topic areas for research questions in German lessons that are developed during the preparatory seminar and can be implemented during the practical semester, include: skill orientation; formulating problems and evaluation processes; models of literary conversations in class; media skills; action- and production-oriented process; literary learning (including eras, classic literature, youth and adolescent literature); identity orientation; problems in orthography didactics; designing grammar lessons; didactic concepts based on genre and type of text; creative writing; and argumentation, moderation, and presenting. Other intersections may arise in the form of the module "German for Students with a Migration Background." Possible aspects are: language acquisition processes in the first and second language, diagnosis process for assessing language level and development; programs and concepts for promoting language; fundamentals of intercultural communication.

Technical Studies

The technical component (3rd and 4th semester) encompasses three advanced modules, that are distributed among German and General Literary Studies or GAL and Literary and Linguistic Studies or SK, based on one's own focus.

German and General Literary Studies (GAL)
The GAL focus is composed of two advanced modules "Literature in an Interdisciplinary Context" and "Literature and Methodology" and the linguistic and literary studies module "Language Theory and History." There is an exam in every module.

Literary and Linguistic Studies (SK)
The SK focus is based on the advanced modules "Cultural and Medial Aspects of Language" and "Language Theory and History"and the literary science advanced module "Literature in an Interdisciplinary Context." There is an exam in every module.

Elective Possibilities in the Focuses

Both literary science advanced modules offers the possibility to complete the module exam in either a seminar from Medieval German Literature, that is Ältere Deutsche Literatur or ÄDL, or from Modern German Literature, that is Neuere Deutschen Literatur or NDL. Students, who choose the GAL focus, must take a module exam in both ÄDL and NDL. There is also an additional linguistics seminar from the module "Language Theory and History."
