Educational Science

... looks into questions such as ...

  • What are the characteristics of the phenomena training, education and socialisation?
  • How can they be approached in a multi-perspective and interdisciplinary manner?
  • What does emerge during a historical, psychological and international investigation of these phenomena?
  • I was surprised by how wide-ranging the discipline is, how many research fields it encompasses – and how diverse the individual areas of educational science truly are.

  • The degree course requires a lot of work, and you have to deliver performance in any given semester. This concept introduces a continuity of sorts into the degree course, which is something I appreciate a lot for the most part.

  • I enjoy the combination of independent learning, familiarising myself with the research subjects and methods, and the exchange with lecturers and my fellow students.
