The option of taking on a third subject in the teaching degree program is possible from the third semester at the earliest. A distinction is made between an ongoing extension, simultaneously to the teaching degree program, and a subsequent extension that is added after the First and Second State Examinations. With an ongoing extension, the standard length of the program is extended by two semesters.
In the third subject, the same State Examination must be taken as in the regular subjects; in many cases, however, no module examinations need to be taken as an admission requirement. The special regulations to be fulfilled in each case can be found in the Lehramtsprüfungsordnung (examination regulations for the teaching profession, LPO I - available in german) in the respective subjects of the respective school type.
If necessary, the extension examination will be taken into account when hiring for civil service. Further information can be found on the homepage of the Bavarian State Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs.
The following extensions with a third subject are possible at the KU:
- A further subject of the offered subjects
- School Counselor (available in german)
- Teaching German as a Second Language (DaZ) (only as a subsequent extension)
- Foreign language qualification (only as a subsequent extension)
- Philosophy/Ethics (available in german)
- School Psychology
Enrollment for the third subject extension is effected at the Student Office with the Application form for adding another degree program (available in german). Depending on the desired subject, an application or aptitude test may be required in advance. A prior consultation with the program structure advisor is required.
