In research and teaching, our Institute of Educational Science contributes to promoting educational processes and qualifying people for activities in education. In research, we investigate conditions, processes, and outcomes of teaching and learning within and outside educational institutions from the perspectives of educational psychology and developmental psychology.
In teaching, we offer the Bachelor’s degree program in Educational Science and Educational Management, the Master’s degree program in Educational Science – Teaching and Learning, and the educational science courses in the two-major Bachelor’s degree with teaching option and in the Master of Education. Our degree programs regularly rank in the top group in CHE rankings. All degrees are taught in German.
