Master of Education: Becoming a Teacher in Berlin

Graduates wishing to become teachers in a state school in Berlin usually need to have a Master of Education degree. This master’s degree program requires a bachelor’s degree with a teacher training component (Lehramtsoption) as an initial degree. Graduates interested in the master’s degree program in education who earned their initial degree abroad can, ideally, have their credit points count toward a bachelor’s degree with a teaching option, but directly applying to a master’s degree program in education is not possible. A bachelor’s degree with a teacher training component (Lehramtsoption) is an admission requirement for the master’s degree program in education. It is currently possible to earn a master’s degree in education at Freie Universität Berlin in the following subjects: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Elementary Education, English, Ethics, French, German, Greek, History, Italian, Latin, Mathematics, Physics, Social studies and Spanish.
