Physics teaches about natural processes and it is one of the exact natural sciences. Natural processes are captured experimentally by quantitative measurement and are represented mathematically in the form of general laws. Physics teachers impart physics knowledge and competences to pupils and awaken interest in the natural sciences in them.
For teachers to perform these vital functions, they must master the basic laws of physics and possess an overview of the foundations of physics.
The study program Master’s in Physics (Teaching Degree) is a prerequisite for entering the teacher training period and confers the eventual right to teach the subject in high schools.
The additional subject Master’s degree is always studied in conjunction with standard teaching degree studies. The Master’s lets students achieve the right to teach a third subject.
