Master’s programs in Pedagogy/Educational Science in Germany focus on the research of educational institutions, the governance of education, educational practices, and psychological insights into the process of learning. Note that the programs in Educational Science or Pedagogy do not qualify students to become state-accredited teachers in Germany, but some of them focus on aspects of social work.

Some programs focus more heavily on research and the scientific and theoretical exploration of issues related to education, learning, and teaching. Other programs also have the goal to prepare their students for professional field work, for example in children’s rights, social work or Waldorf pedagogy. Some programs are very interdisciplinary and combine the field of education with subjects such as Medicine, Sports, Engineering, and Computer Science.

Therefore, students looking to study this subject in Germany can profit from diverse and cutting-edge programs. Take some time to explore the English-language programs in Pedagogy and Educational Science listed in our Study Finder.

Application Requirements

When you apply to a Master’s program in Germany, universities will usually expect you to have an academic degree in a related discipline. For Pedagogy/Educational Science, first degrees from academic fields such as Education, Pedagogy, Psychology, or Sociology are often accepted. For the more practically oriented courses, a degree in Social Work may be required. Note that some of the interdisciplinary programs are open to students of more diverse academic backgrounds. For example, some programs may only be open to engineers, computer scientists, dentists, or students of natural sciences. Usually, application tests or interviews are not part of the admission process, students must simply submit required documents. In addition to standard certificates (e.g. first degree certificate, a transcript of records, a language certificate), a CV and a letter of motivation are typically required. Some programs also require you to have prior coursework in scientific research methods. Programs may also ask their applicants for professional experiences.
