The subject of "Latein / Latin" in the Teaching in Secondary Schools program is oriented based on the requirements of the practice of teaching Latin in secondary schools.
The program imparts the linguistic, subject and teaching-related principles for exercising the teaching profession at secondary schools and collects initial experiences in practical teaching in schools, following academic instruction.
The university education in the subject of "Latein / Latin" is the basic science for European self-conception; the subject matter is texts from the Roman-Latin antiquity and late antiquity and from the Latinity of the Middle Ages and the modern period, which have particularly imprinted themselves in European intellectual history.
The program qualifies students for academic work and for the responsible execution of the teaching profession based on the acquired knowledge and expertise.
The essential study goals in the subject of "Latein / Latin" include:
Acquisition and deepening of linguistic expertise (solid language skills, theoretical and historical aspects of the Latin language), methodologically directed handling of literature (basic concepts of literary science, history of Latin literature and its reception, text tradition and criticism, scientific interpretation) and the necessary skills in archeology and cultural studies (philosophy, political history, religion, art, law, society, etc.) and the capability for didactic mediation of subject-related content.
With a study program in the subject of "Latein / Latin," with subsequent teacher traineeship, you will gain qualifications that will open up access to the profession of teaching in secondary schools, on the one hand, but you will also gain access to many other professional fields, on the other.
The Latin program can also prepare you for extracurricular professional fields in the area of classical philology, publishing and journalism, library sciences and the cultural field in general, or related activities.
