Wahlbereich UF Englisch (M10 Electives)

The Wahlbereich (M10 Electives) is a compulsory part of the Teacher Education Programme. Students need to complete a total of 10 ECTS distributed between their two main teaching subjects. The module needs to be completed with courses/lectures, which have a focus on English Studies or Pedagogy/Didactics. 

The director of studies (SPL12) approves a list of courses each semester, which can be used towards the Wahlbereich for UF Englisch. The list can be found in the syllabus on u:space. 

It is up to you to decide how you distribute the ECTS (e.g. 7 ECTS for UF Englisch and 3 ECTS for your second subject or 5 ECTS pro subject). You can also complete all 10 ECTS for just one of the two subjects. 

Students with a third subject (Erweiterungsstudium) need to complete additional 5 ECTS for the Wahlbereich of that subject. 

For students with an external second teaching subject (e.g. UF Musikerziehung, UF Bildnerische Erziehung) the Wahlbereich in UF English needs to contain 5 ECTS.
