The subject of Latin in the Master of Education course deals with the acquisition of Latin languages ??and Latin literature, linguistics and cultural studies. Careful language training and cultural studies studies play an equally important role. The subject-specific content includes, on the one hand, deepening the practice of Latin by further expanding knowledge of the Latin language in the areas of lexicons, syntax and stylistics, but also with the help of the translation of more complex German texts into Latin. On the other hand, the course focuses on content from literary studies. The students learn to deal with research problems and methods of Latin philology and gain knowledge of the current state of research on authors, genres,

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 get to know language teaching and language learning theories as well as the role of Latin in multilingualism. In addition, they deal with the didactics and methodology of foreign language teaching with special consideration of linguistic, cultural and other relevant forms of heterogeneity in learning groups.

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