The subject of biology in the Master of Education course deals with microbiology and human biology. Students learn how to safely deal with microbes, including the sterile work and isolation process, as well as the enrichment, characterization and identification of microbes. In addition to content on human and immunobiology, school-relevant experiments on human biological topics are also taught.

While the focus of the Bachelor’s program is on the two specialist subjects, the Master of Education’s focus is more on educational sciences and subject didactics. In the subject didactic modules, the students deal with biological didactic learning and teaching. You will gain an insight into research in biology didactics, learn how to plan, implement and reflect on thematic and curriculum-related teaching elements, as well as the conception and design of practice-oriented biology lessons, taking into account inclusion-oriented issues.

Two subjects are studied in the teaching post for grammar schools and comprehensive schools. In addition to biology, students also take a second subject and educational sciences. The five-month practical semester is a central component of the course.
