What is the degree program about?

Education does not only take place in kindergartens and schools, and educators do not only work with children and young people. They provide support for learning processes in all areas of life and promote the education and development of people at all ages. There are a variety of subdivisions: Vocational, Elementary, Recreational, Cultural, Art, Moral, Music, Organizational, Religious, School, Social, Sport and Business Education, Intercultural Education, Adult Education, etc.

The Education degree program in Erlangen offers above all a scientific introduction to general pedagogical questions. The main focus is on learning pedagogical ways of thinking and research methods. During their studies, students learn about pedagogical basics and historical developments of the subject as well as about pedagogical topics and fields of work. This opens up the possibility of systematically grasping pedagogical issues and developing solutions for them. In the compulsory internship, the focus is on independently applying pedagogical action knowledge.

The degree program is based on a diversity-sensitive and critical understanding of pedagogy and educational science, which makes the handling of difference, the question of conditions and possibilities of transcending the social status quo, the production of subjectivity and the empowerment of subjects (in their relational entanglements with the world) the decisive reference points of university teaching.
