The master's degree in teaching German is made up of the departments of German Linguistics, German Medieval Studies, Modern German Literature (NDL) and subject didactics. Linguistics teaches the ability to analyze specific language material, from the phonetic and written system to the structure of sentences and the level of meaning. Literary studies offers theories and methods for the analysis and interpretation of German-language texts from the early Middle Ages to the present day. In the subject didactics, methods of German teaching are practiced.

The master's degree is always studied in conjunction with a regular teacher training course. The master’s degree enables students to teach a third subject.



The prerequisite is the completion of a teaching degree related to a bachelor's degree (grammar school teaching degree), which comprises study components of two subjects and their subject didactics, educational sciences and practical school studies. You can find further information in the guide for teacher training for the M.Ed. read up. You can find complete information about the admission procedure in the admission regulations.



The German studies course is divided into three subject areas: Modern German Literature, German Medieval Studies and German Linguistics. In all three departments, you should first take the introductory modules and the direct follow-up modules at the beginning of your studies. Once you have acquired these necessary basics, you can study the modules in a different order.

When putting together your timetable, however, make sure that you do not overwhelm yourself. As a guideline: Those who can study full-time can put together modules with a total of 30 ECTS. You should not exceed more than five exams (LPB or PL) per semester; We would not recommend more than two, at most three term papers
