The subject of German in the Master of Education course offers a broad Germanic education and balanced teaching of both methodological and theoretical content as well as language, literature, cultural studies and media history. Knowledge in central areas of German linguistics is deepened in close connection with newer scientific questions and analysis methods. Dealing with the theoretical concepts of literary and media studies as well as issues of literary history also plays an important role.

The Master of Education degree systematically deepens the knowledge and skills acquired in the Bachelor's degree, whereby the relationship between specialist science and subject didactics is reversed compared to the Bachelor’s degree and an increased focus on subject-related didactic questions and practical school elements comes to the fore. In subject didactic modules, the students deal with the work areas of German lessons and deepen their theoretical and methodological knowledge of German didactics.

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