The aim of this study field is to prepare primary school teachers for teaching the general subject – German language and literature.

The Master’s degree programme focuses on the study of the didactics of the German language and on forming the relationships between the particular linguistic, cultural, and literary disciplines and the didactics of German. The focus is on the linguistic-didactic output of all the disciplines and the practical application of all the knowledge to the pedagogical practice at the upper level of primary schools.

The programme also provides qualification for the German language teaching at language schools and for employees in non-teaching positions requiring an excellent knowledge of German (e.g. in public administration).

Linguistic-didactic competence of the graduate is developed to a larger extent compared to the double-subject programme students. Thus, after gaining the necessary practice, the graduates can work as mentors (introductory teachers).
