General goals of the study program

The goal of the partial course of study in music for the teaching profession is the profession-related training of music teachers. It is based on an open concept of music, which takes into account the diversity of musical phenomena (art music of the past and present, popular music, music of other cultures) as well as the heterogeneous social practice of music (making one's own music; music as a partial cultural medium of identification, especially among young people; everyday contact with mass media music; production and distribution of music, etc.).

Accordingly, the module examination regulations are based on a competence profile that interlocks scientific and artistic perspectives in such a way that students are enabled to teach music in a target group-oriented and appropriate manner.
