Economics (Teaching position high school/subject)
Description of the subject
The subject of economics as a teacher training course imparts essential knowledge in the areas of business administration and economics as well as accounting, law and specialist didactics. The course provides students with basic skills for independent scientific analysis of economic issues as well as for the independent application of economic knowledge and skills in the teaching profession.
Business administration sees itself as an applied science that applies the findings from basic sciences to questions and problems that come from practice. It is an empirical science, but it also develops its own theories and models in order to derive recommendations for action. The subject of economics is the research of micro and macroeconomic (= microeconomic and macroeconomic) relationships and the possibilities of influencing economic activity through legislation, central bank and state activities. The economic role of the state is dealt with in particular by the finance division.
In addition, the students are taught the basics of German jurisprudence and the ability to didactically prepare content from the economic context.
Fields of activity and professional fields
In this course of study, teaching at public (and private) high schools is aimed at. For this purpose, a two-year legal traineeship at a school is necessary after the first state examination, which is completed with the second state examination.
The most important requirement is analytical skills. They are the basis for the methods and models imparted in the course and the structured problem-solving approaches that are combined under the umbrella of the subject. Since a central component of modern economic methodology is mathematical modeling, which is also used accordingly during the teacher training course, you should have sufficient mathematical knowledge. Furthermore, English language skills and basic IT skills are self-evident prerequisites for studying economics as a teacher.

With the help of internships, students are introduced to the school profession at an early stage. In order to check suitability and inclination, an orientation internship should ideally be completed on your own before the start of the course (also possible during the course). In order to make the right choice of studies, different types of schools can be attended within this internship. During the course, a pedagogical-didactic school internship and two course-related subject-didactic internships must be completed in the school. In addition, the internship must be organized independently. This can be used to try out alternative professions. The following internships are to be completed for students of the teaching profession at grammar schools:
- an orientation internship
- a pedagogical-didactic school internship with a scope of 150-160 teaching hours (it must be completed within two consecutive school half-years)
- a course-related didactic internship in one of your subjects (not in psychology and not in an additional subject).
- a four-month commercial internship
Further information can be found under "Teaching qualification for grammar school" and on the pages of the internship offices in Upper Bavaria West and Upper Bavaria East.

Further technical admission requirements and the examination parts for the first state examination can be found in the current Teaching Examination Regulations I (2008). The registration takes place at the branch office of the examination office. (See below for contact)
