Educational Sciences

Educational sciences are the interface between subject-specific training on one side and school as a workplace on the other. The different scientific disciplines in this field aim at deepening educational theory and processes while taking their institutional and overall social organization into account.

In the area of educational and developmental processes, students are equipped with the necessary skills for their practical semester and for practical teacher training, which follows graduation. Students do not only learn about questions regarding the didactics and methodology of creating lessons and learning environments but also about offering support in a differentiated and integrative way, preparing them for teaching an increasingly heterogeneous and diverse group of learners. In addition, this field covers the entire range of psychological and social aspects of learning inside and outside the school as well as their identification.

Possible lines of work:

Schools (teacher, principal, functional positions), teacher education at seminars/universities, school authority/ministry positions, academia/research, educational/career guidance

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
