Physics for Education

General information

The programme is a part of a double-subject study and it is the first stage of the process leading to gaining approbation for secondary school teachers. The programme offers general knowledge of physics. It also involves appropriate mathematical education, either as a part of the second study programme or as individual mathematical courses. The objective of the study programme is to prepare graduates for the follow-up studies in a Master's programme of Upper Secondary Teacher Training in Physics. Graduates are well prepared both in mathematics and physics, and also in the basics of pedagogy, didactics and psychology. Therefore, they can find a job also outside education.

A successful graduate is able to

  • demonstrate a good knowledge of basic disciplines in general and theoretical physics
  • formulate a physical problem, analyse it and solve it using an appropriate physical model and mathematical method
  • manage with certainty both basic laboratory methods and experimental data processing
  • use a computer to create text and data documents as well as use the Internet
  • demonstrate a good knowledge of basics of general didactics, pedagogy and psychology and is ready for the follow-up studies of these disciplines
  • formulate acquired knowledge comprehensibly and orderly, also in a way well suited to laypeople

Graduate employment

The primary goal is to follow up with a Master's study programme. Otherwise, graduates can find a job in basic or applied research, in laboratories or companies, special laboratories, meteorological institutes, institutions using informatics, etc. Even though they are not fully qualified as teachers, they can find a job in popularization activities aimed at general public. Moreover, they can assist in elementary or secondary schools within special seminars for gifted students, physical competitions, entrance examinations to universities, etc.
