Content and focus of the degree programme:

The teacher training programme in English will enable future English teachers to act in a highly competent, flexible and confident way in their teaching job. Apart from the constructive and critical contact that will help them to attain a sound subject knowledge during their studies, students also have to acquire the relevant knowledge and skills which are useful for working both inside and outside the classroom, especially practice-related skills and cultural and intercultural skills. Moreover, the students also acquire skills that go beyond their subject-related skills, i.e. the ability to critically reflect, to develop an understanding for interdisciplinary and intercultural thinking, flexibility, coordination and motivation ability and the organisation of the creative learning process in foreign language teaching. The teacher training programme must be combined with another teaching subject. The medium of instruction is English.
