Primary Teacher Education specifically aims at working in the learning and growth environments of the basic education grades 0 to 6. The programme gives the student plentiful capabilities in pedagogy, didactics and subject mastery to encounter educational challenges in the future school.
The studies offer ingredients for the construction of a student’s own pedagogical views and activities, and they guide the student to become aware of the social meaning of a primary teacher’s work. In addition to the courses offered by the Faculty of Education, the student can also apply for a right to pursue studies in the modules offered by five other faculties.
