Information about Teaching & Study

Department of General Studies and Inclusive Didactics

General Studies can be studied at Leibniz University Hannover as a second subject or as an extension subject within the framework of the special education programme.

It is taken from the 3rd BA semester onwards. After completing the appropriate Master's programme, students qualify for a teaching position in Special Education as a second subject.

The subject of General Studies is understood as a general educational orientation subject at primary school level and deals with natural science phenomena and social issues.

The consequence of this is that thinking is based on perspectives and not on subjects. The aim is to establish a relationship between children’s own experience and specialist knowledge.

The teaching area General Studies and Inclusive Didactics focuses on the individual ideas of children with different learning prerequisites about phenomena and questions in their environment, thus initiating learning and educational processes based on these ideas. These childlike perspectives are further developed in a factual and professional way.
