Definition of the field of studies

The subject “education” deals with the structures and functions of education. The focus is on theoretical and methodological problems for an analysis of educational processes and the understanding of the reality of education.


In the bachelor programme the compulsory modules theory of education (education-related academic working, constitution problems in education studies, education and anthropology), education, society and the individual (education and historicity, education and politics, the individual and development) and methodology and methods of education studies (philosophical methods in education studies, empirical research methods in education studies I and II) must be studied. Moreover, focal subjects from the fields of the changing face of education, learning and teaching, inclusive education for people with special educational needs, and education, guidance and development for all ages must be chosen.
