The subject of social sciences in the Master of Education course deals with the recording of social and political problems, their classification in broader contexts and the development of basic approaches to social, political and state theory. In this way, students get to know the analysis of political and social structures, processes and developments during their studies. Here, the classification of the conditions in which social problems arose with regard to historical conditions as well as possibilities for shaping and influencing plays an important role.

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 learn to apply methods, working techniques and media to implement political science, sociological and economic content in the classroom. This includes developing and planning your own research and teaching projects. Dealing with inclusive issues in political education is also taken into account in subject didactics.

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