Program structure – Master of Education Physics

The teaching degree program “Master of Education Physics” consists of Physics and one other specialist field. Besides attending courses on teaching methodology for their respective subject, students also register for Education Studies. The standard period of study is four semesters.

During the first and third semester, students participate in two specialization lectures from the fields of experimental and theoretical physics as well as an advanced lab course. In the third semester, the knowledge already acquired will be supplemented with interdisciplinary concepts and applications. Until the end of the third semester, students will also take lecturse on teaching methodology, a lab course and an advanced seminar. If you choose Physics as the first of your two specialist fields, your Master’s thesis and the final oral examination will be scheduled for the fourth semester.
