Bachelor’s and master's degrees for teacher education

The University of Siegen offers a teacher training program starting at the undergraduate level, i.e. with a close link between the subject-specific studies and the specialist didactic and educational sciences contents from the start of the bachelor's program.
Additionally, the University of Siegen offers the option of studying for a teaching degree for elementary schools with integrated special education.
