Lehramtsstudiengang (Bachelor)

Koblenz-Landau University is the only university in the Rhineland-Palatinate to offer Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs for teaching at all types of school in Germany – i.e. primary schools, Realschule Plus schools, Gymnasium schools, special schools and also vocational schools. The Koblenz campus cooperates with the Koblenz University of Applied Sciences in providing training for teachers at vocational schools.

The aim of the teaching-related Bachelor’s degree program is to convey basic knowledge, methodological competence and qualifications relating to the professional field. The degree program addresses professional education-oriented requirements; it combines theory with practical training. The teaching-related Bachelor’s degree program creates the best possible transition between the various teacher training courses.

In all teacher training programs (with the exception of vocational school training programs in which specific focal points need to be covered), students in their first four semesters study Bildungswissenschaften and two specialist subjects. Students subsequently choose to major in a subject related to the type of school they plan to work at.

The university offers majors in relation to the following types of school:

  • Primary school
  • Realschule Plus
  • Gymnasium
  • Special school (Landau only)
  • Vocational school (Koblenz only)
