Short Description

Spanish is offered as a teaching subject (or supplementary teaching subject) within the degree programme Master’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education. As a first subject, a vocational subject must be studied.

Spanish is the fourth most commonly spoken language in the world, spoken by some 450 million people across four continents.

Four semesters is the standard period of study for the Master’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education. Students require a Bachelor’s degree or an equivalent qualification in a vocational subject area and the teaching subject of Spanish to be admitted to the Master’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education. The Ordinance on Master’s Degrees for Teacher Training in Lower Saxony (Nds. MasterVO-Lehr) specifies provisions relating to subject combinations that must be observed.

Those who study Spanish Studies examine the linguistics, literature and culture of the Spanish-speaking world. In addition to these three core areas, students also learn teaching methodology. They also develop their language skills to university level.

Education sciences as well as vocational and business education play a major role in the Master’s degree programme.
