The common distinction between experimental physics and theoretical physics at universities only serves as a way to refer to different ways of working within the field of physics; it does not represent two different courses of study. The nature of physics consists in combining experiment and theory, and a course of study in physics includes both in the same measure. The goal of the course of study in Physics is to teach students the foundations of the field. Not until students write their final thesis do they tackle a special problem in physics from a experimental or a theoretical perspective. A very important prerequisite for studying physics is sufficient mathematical aptitude. Since physics makes much more intensive use of mathematics than other natural sciences, the physicist must acquire much better math skills than those taught in school. Mathematics and physics is thus a good combination of fields for students in the teacher education program.

An overview of all the subjects that can be taken in combination with subject Physics by students who started their Polyvalent dual-major bachelor's degree program in the winter semester 2015/16 or later:

Biology | Chemistry | German | English | French | Geography | History | Greek | Computer Science | Italian | Catholic Theology | Latin | Mathematics | Philosophy/Ethics | Political Science | Economic Science | Russian | Spanish | Physical Education | Chinese |

It is possible to study music at the University of Music in Freiburg and art at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe. Make sure to inquire about the admission requirements at these institutions before deciding on these fields. You may combine any teaching degree field with either of these two artistic fields. However, it is not possible to combine music and art.
Please also note that it is not possible to be admitted as a student teacher with a combination of any of the following fields: Catholic theology, Protestant theology, Jewish theology, Islamic religious studies. It is not possible to combine one of these fields with philosophy/ethics either.

Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.

Central Student Advising Office


The central student advisory service - the Central Student Advising Office (ZSB) provides information and advice on all questions that may arise prior to, at the beginning of, and during a course of study. The Student Service Center – Center for Teacher Education [de] offers a special academic advising for current and prospective students of teaching degree programs. If you are seeking subject-specific advice in addition to this, you can also contact the respective subject academic advisor
