Master of Education


The Master of Education degree program in Chemistry explores the composition, structure, characteristics and transformation of substances. An important element of this program is describing and characterizing substances as well as the physical laws to which transformation processes adhere. Students are given the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge, among others, in the three main areas of chemistry: inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry.

While students in the bachelor's degree program focus on gaining subject-specific knowledge, the Master of Education degree program puts a stronger emphasis on educational sciences and subject didactics. Students develop concepts for practical experimental techniques that can be used in school lessons, taking into account the specific circumstances that apply there (e.g. safety, relevance and learners’ perception).

In teaching degree programs for grammar and comprehensive schools, students choose two school subjects. Thus, in addition to Chemistry, students are enrolled for a second subject as well as educational sciences. The practical semester is a key component of the degree program.
