The Teacher Education program prepares you for a career in teaching at a secondary or vocational school. Even though the program is designed for prospective teachers, you can also pursue many other careers.
Teachers give classes to children and young adults of different age groups. They teach the subjects they chose in their degree program. Teachers can work at secondary schools (Gymnasium) or vocational schools, such as trade or business schools. The Teacher Education program always includes two subjects and, in addition, allows you to choose an extension subject. If you want to become a schoolteacher, you must complete the preparatory service (Referendariat) after earning your Master of Education. Besides a career in teaching, graduates can go into school administration and become school presidents or trainers at vocational schools for teachers, for example.
