The course of study for those training to become teachers in the subject of “Catholic religion” at grammar schools is focused on the practical demands of teaching religion in such a context. Consequently, students acquire the relevant knowledge of the subject and are taught subject-specific didactic foundations. Students gain their first practical experience teaching under academic guidance.
The competencies students acquire, i.e. a knowledge of, qualification in and attitudes regarding the various sub-disciplines of Catholic theology, will enable them to engage in academic work and carry out their work as teachers in a socially responsible way.
