General information

This study programme forms a part of double-subject course and constitutes the first level of university studies leading to a teaching qualification for secondary schools. It provides general mathematical education. The objectives of the study programme contain the preparation of graduates for the follow-up Master's degree programme of Upper Secondary School Teacher Training in Mathematics, but due to the comprehensive mathematical education and the basics of pedagogy, methodology, and psychology, the graduates can find employment even outside the area of education.

A successful graduate is able to

  • show knowledge of basic mathematical concepts and scientific theories
  • use mathematical information sources to find relevant information
  • understand well the basic ideas and concepts of general didactics, pedagogy, and psychology
  • continue to study applied didactics, pedagogy, and psychology in the follow-up Master's degree programmes

Graduate employment

The graduates of the Bachelor's degree programme will be able to use their knowledge and skills in practice in a number of positions due to their professional abilities, level of adaptability, IT literacy, and creative approach to work.

Although graduates are not fully qualified teachers, their education is practical, and can be used for activities aiming at the general public, applied at secondary and primary schools in conducting special seminars for gifted students, preparing these students for the Olympiads, competitions, and entrance exams to universities. The obtained knowledge and skills will ensure that after finishing the Master's degree programme the graduates will be able to teach mathematics at secondary schools with sufficient insight and qualification.
