Organising the Professionalisation Area: Information for Two-subject Bachelor's Students
The subject-related studies in the two-subject Bachelor's degree are complemented by the professionalisation area. This offers you the opportunity to develop an individual profile.
The professionalisation area consists of the optional area and the key competence area.
The structure of the professionalisation area is illustrated in the following graphic:
In the optional area, you choose your study profile. With the exception of students enrolled in the teaching profile, all others have the freedom to choose the appropriate supplement to their subject studies from the remaining three profiles.
In the Subject-specific profile (18 C), you deepen one of your two subjects and thus form a subject-specific focus in your studies.
The Occupational-related Profile (18 C) offers you the opportunity to prepare for the world of work with practice-oriented specialised courses.
In the teaching profile (26 C) you study didactic and educational science modules.
The profile Studium generale (36 C) allows you to freely design the entire scope of the professionalisation area according to your wishes within the framework of the course offerings released for this purpose.
Key Competence Area
Key competences serve to acquire additional qualifications and also include the option of integrating internships and voluntary work into your studies.
In addition to the subject-related and occupational field-related profile, you acquire 18 credits within the framework of the key competences, in addition to the teaching profession-related profile, this is 10 credits. Within the framework of the Studium generale, you have the free choice of how extensively you would like to incorporate key competences into your studies.
Recommendations for Organising the Professionalisation Area
At the beginning of the degree programme, courses dealing with study skills (e.g. motivation, working and learning techniques), methodological skills (e.g. writing skills) and social skills (e.g. teamwork and communication) can be helpful.
In the third and fourth semesters, content from the areas of career orientation (e.g. internships), social skills (e.g. committee work) and language skills/foreign languages is recommended.
Towards the end of the degree programme, job-relevant skills (e.g. project management) as well as skills for starting a career (e.g. job application skills) can be helpful.
IMPORTANT: The concrete requirements for the design of the various study profiles can be found in the respective study and examination regulations. These can be found on the following website (after selecting the subject via the tab 'study structure' in the grey box).
In the area of Key Competences, only modules that are designated as such can be taken. Please note the offers in the area of key competences.
