Short Description

The subject Politics and Economics is offered as one of two subjects within the Master’s Teacher Training Course for Grammar Schools.

The Master’s Teacher Training Course for Grammar Schools follows on from the Interdisciplinary Bachelor’s Degree Programme (or a comparable degree programme). In the subject of Politics and Economics, the student’s specialist knowledge is complemented (e.g. by the module Economic, Labour and Social Policy) or supplemented (e.g. by the module International Relations). The main aim is for students to familiarise themselves with teaching practice in the subject of Politics and Economics, and to undertake teaching methodological reflection.
