If you want to become a language teacher in upper secondary school you can choose to teach in two different languages or combine a language with another subject. At this programme you will study English for four semesters, your first subject, and French for three semesters, your second subject, and if you want you can take the first course in French in Aix-en-Provence in France.

Beside substantial subject knowledge this programme will give you tools to work with the many social relations that every teacher meets each day. You will also gain practical and theoretical tools to see, asses and follow pupils' and your own learning.

Within the courses in educational science you will learn about pupils needs, rights and obligations and other matters concerning school, society, teaching and development.

An important and appreciated part of the programme is the school placement. During your school placement you will be in a school and participate in the pedagogical practice and you also have the optional opportunity to do one of your school placement courses abroad.

If your university has an agreement with our department you are welcome to join us as an exchange student.
