Teacher Education

What can you expect at the University of Mannheim?

The bachelor’s and master’s programs in Teacher Education at the University of Mannheim are designed for the challenges at the schools. Both programs have an interdisciplinary approach (combining subjects, Teaching Methodology, and Education Sciences) and provide teaching and research on currently relevant, school-related topics such as multilingualism and heterogeneity. In this program, students will acquire the skills they will later need as teachers at the schools.
