Master of Education Mathematics

The Master of Education at RUB consists of studies in the two teaching subjects from the Bachelor's degree as well as in the subject Educational Science and a practical semester. Students are prepared for the teaching profession at high schools ("Gymnasium" and "Gesamtschule") or a career in subject-specific didactics research.

The study of mathematics is composed of three core modules and thus offers a balanced combination of subject-specific didactics, science and practice:

  • Subject Didactics: The subject-specific didactics at our faculty focuses on highly topical issues such as inclusion and digitalization.
  • Science: In-depth specializations are possible in the areas of stochastics and statistics, differential geometry/dynamic systems, complex analysis, numerical mathematics, and algebra and topology.
  • Practical Semester: The third semester in the MEd program is completed entirely as a practical semester at a school. Students are supported here by a preparatory seminar and an accompanying seminar.
