English (Teaching degree)

Teaching subject for Elementary school (Grundschule), secondary school (Mittelschule, Realschule, Gymnasium)

Become an expert in the English language and acquire in-depth knowledge of language, literature and cultural studies as well as subject didactics and educational science with a teaching degree in English.

What is the degree program about?

In addition to acquiring excellent language skills in English, the main focus is on acquiring subject-specific knowledge in linguistics, literature and (in LA GYM) cultural studies as well as subject didactics and educational science.

The teaching degree program in English can be studied either for elementary school (Grundschule), secondary school (Mittelschule or Realschule), or grammar school (Gymnasium). In its subject-related parts, the teaching degree program in English for Gymnasium (Lehramt Gymnasium) largely corresponds to the Bachelor’s program in English and American Studies; in the teaching degree program for Grundschule, Mittelschule, and Realschule (Lehramt Unterrichtsfach), the proportion of subject-related training is reduced in favor of the educational sciences.
