Philosophy for prospective teachers

How can students be inspired to philosophise? What will strengthen their ability to reflect on philosophical questions and to understand philosophical positions? How can you teach consistent argumentation and the art of justifying propositions? Which themes and texts are particularly suited for philosophy lesson plans? Our degree courses, the Bachelor of Arts (Teaching Qualification Degree Program) and the Master of Education in Philosophy, offer didactics of philosophy combined with a well-founded knowledge of philosophical controversies of the past and present. Both courses of study are closely coordinated with the second stage of teacher training, the so-called preparatory service, which is the responsibility of the Institute for Quality Development at Schools in Schleswig-Holstein (IQSH).

Degrees:

– Teaching qualification for secondary schools – 2 subjects within the Bachelor of Arts (Teaching Qualification) course, 3 years
– Teaching qualification for secondary schools – 2 subjects within the Master of Education in Philosophy course, 2 years
– Teaching qualification for secondary schools – additional subject
– Teaching qualification for vocational schools – Philosophy as a second subject within either the Bachelor or the Master of Economics (Business Teacher) Degree Program
