This programme at the University of Oldenburg trains students in the didactic dimension of their subject, preparing them not only to analyse the emergence of and changes in historical consciousness, but also to convey their knowledge to others, either inside or outside of a school environment.
This didactic approach to history for educational or non-education career fields has a long tradition at the University of Oldenburg. Research is carried out in all areas, from ancient to modern history; research focal points include the comparative history of north-western Europe from the middle ages to the present, as well as history didactics. The history of east Europe is a structure feature of both research and teaching in Oldenburg.
Students who intend to acquire a Master of Education for teaching in the Gymnasium must provide evidence of their skills in Latin and a modern foreign language by the time they attend the final colloquium (Abschlusskolloquium) in the master's programme.
It is therefore recommended that students seek to fulfill the above requirements during their studies at the bachelor's level.
In order to study this course at the University of Oldenburg as a student from outside of Germany, you need an adequate knowledge of German.
