The English subject in the Master of Education program has a regional focus on Great Britain, North America and the post-colonial world. The interdisciplinary orientation includes dealing with language, literature and culture as well as historical, philosophical, political and media studies issues. English linguistics and communication, North American studies as well as British and post-colonial literary and cultural studies form the academic focal points of the course.

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. Didactic theories, models and methods for teaching English are developed within the subject didactics. Learning-centered and action-oriented methods, approaches and teaching techniques of language didactics, literature and culture didactics as well as media didactics are learned.

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