Bachelor of Education in Mathematics

Over the course of your Bachelor and Master of Education studies, you gain the professional requirements to be able to teach Mathematics at a Secondary School (German "Gymnasium"). The Bachelor of Education is thus a part of the three-part qualification for a teaching position at a Secondary School. Afterwards, you intensify your studies in the Master of Education, which is the precondition for the teacher training ("Referendariat").
