Chemistry for Education
This study programme is a three year double-subject study, finished with a Bachelor's final examination in both chosen study subjects and the defence of a Bachelor's thesis in one of the study subjects. This study programme prepares university educated specialists who have firm foundations in general chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry and biochemistry. Lectures in mathematics and physics are an integral part of the syllabus. Graduates are also educated in pedagogical and psychological disciplines and didactics (philosophy, psychology, pedagogy and general didactics). To be fully qualified as a teacher, further Master's degree study is required.
A successful graduate is able to
- carry out chemical experiments
- analyze experimental results using instrumental methods
- use chemical information sources to find relevant information
- safely handle chemical compounds
- understand environmental aspects of chemical research and production
- understand and follow ethical guidelines of scientific work
- comprehend psychological and pedagogical issues in education
Graduates are not fully qualified high school teachers. However, they can work as teachers' assistants at elementary schools and secondary schools, conducting specialized seminars for talented students, preparatory classes for scientific competitions and olympiads, and seminars for university entrance examinations. Owing to their theoretical and laboratory skills in chemistry, the graduates may also find a job in research organizations and analytical laboratories.
