The two-year master’s degree in teaching Italian covers the fields of linguistics, literary studies, cultural studies and language practice, as well as specialist didactics. Different options during the course of study allow the study to be structured flexibly.

In a comprehensive module, which combines linguistics and literary studies, relevant content and theories are deepened. This module is supplemented by a deepening of the regional and practical language training. Didactic course content and an internship semester prepare the prospective teachers for dealing with the subject of Italian in school.

Admission with conditions

In the case of admission with conditions, you will be admitted, but you must catch up on certain examinations from the bachelor's degree before you register for the master's thesis. This can be the case, for example, if you completed your bachelor's degree at another university or a university of applied sciences and did not take seminars or modules there that you need for the master’s degree at the University of Stuttgart. The final decision as to whether your professional aptitude is recognized as sufficient is made by the admissions committee .

Graduated from a university of applied sciences

A degree from a university of applied sciences (formerly a university of applied sciences) or the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University basically entitles you to study for a master’s degree at a university, according to the State University Act.

Admission restriction (NC)

In master’s courses in which the number of study places is limited (Numerus Clausus (NC)), ranking lists are created for the allocation of study places based on the criteria that are a prerequisite for admission to the master’s course. The admission regulations for the relevant master’s degree program regulate further details.
