Short Description

Sports 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.

With the large number of vocational schools in the area, the  Department of Sports Science is particularly committed to this degree programme. We focus particularly on courses that promote the importance of physical activity, games and sport in the context of education and development processes, and address the specific realisation of educational goals in teaching strategies. The intensively supervised school internship plays a significant role in this context. The teacher training element building on the bachelor’s degree phase provides in-depth skills for teaching situations.

The provision of sports science, educational and teaching knowledge and insights combined with abilities and skills in sports activities form the basis for future sports lessons with learning groups at vocational schools. Students should also have knowledge of a wide variety of areas of sports education, social sciences and natural sciences. They gain abilities and skills across the board in their training in sports education and methods. They are thus in a position to e.g. plan, carry out and reflect critically on their first teaching projects.

Career Opportunities

The subject sport provides opportunities for practical experience through cooperation with social institutions, sports clubs, sport medicine institutes and professional associations. The main field of professional activity is clearly in schools. With a master’s degree, alternatives to a school career are activities in professional associations, health insurances, gyms, as self-employed coaches or in open youth and social work. The professional specialisation can also be a field of activity.
