As a school subject at grammar schools throughout Baden-Württemberg, computer science is undergoing a rapid development: from the introductory basic course “Media Education” in grade 5 to a compulsory advanced course “Computer Science” in grade 7 to the design of a new profile subject “Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics” (IMP), which can be chosen as an alternative to the already existing profile subject “Science and Technology” (NwT) - in future, teachers with the appropriate qualifications will be needed everywhere.

If you wish to pursue a teaching degree in computer science, you should select the so-called "polyvalent double major bachelor’s degree program with a teaching education option". That means you will study computer science and a second subject simultaneously and can then decide whether:

  • You wish to become a teacher, in which case you would have additional modules in didactics (in computer science and a second subject) and educational sciences; or
  • You decide that teaching is not for you. Then you have the option to hone your skills individually in both subjects.
An overview of all the subjects that can be taken in combination with subject Computer Science 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 | Italian | Catholic Theology | Latin | Mathematics | Philosophy/Ethics | Physics | 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.
