Educational science

Please note: The Mono Bachelor Educational Science is instructed in German. Sufficient German knowledge is a key requirement for successful admission! We do our best to keep the English version of the Examination Office's website up to date. If you are able to, we advise you to refer to the German version as well.

Which topics are addressed in educational science?

With 120 credit points, educational science course components make up the clear focus of the course program. Diverse educational topics from theories of education/education and upbringing (module 1) to child and youth welfare (module 4) to heterogeneity in educational processes (module 5) are dealt with here. Empirical research methods are taught in modules 2 and 8 in the basic and in-depth areas of the program (quantitative and qualitative methods).

Especially in the specialization/in-depth area (only in German) from the fourth semester onwards, students have the opportunity to set their own specific focus and to plan and carry out projects (only in German) in the modules 9 and 11 independently or with the support of an institute at the department. The guide for the transition from the basic to the advanced area of the study program can serve as orientation in order to design the further path of studies as individually as possible. This area and the entire course is completed by the bachelor thesis during the 6th semester.

The exact descriptions of the content, qualification goals and framework conditions can be viewed in the module descriptions (only in German).
