The subject of chemistry in the Master of Education course deals with the composition, structure, properties and transformations of substances. It is about the representation and characterization of new substances as well as the physical laws according to which the transformations of substances take place. The students can deepen their specialist knowledge in the three main areas of chemistry - inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry.

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. The students develop concepts for school-oriented chemical experimental techniques, taking into account the specific framework conditions of school lessons (e.g. occupational safety, everyday relevance and perception by the students).

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