Description of the Study Program

Graduate of the 2nd level of university study of teaching descriptive geometry in combination - conversion in the field of study 38. Teaching and pedagogical sciences is qualified to perform the profession of qualified teacher of approbation subjects of his specialization at the level of lower and upper secondary education. Pursuant to Act no. 138/2019 Coll. §28 is a career pedagogical employee who has extensive knowledge and experience in the field of teaching. He masters the extended content of the disciplines of his specialization, as well as the content of several psychological and pedagogical disciplines. He acquires pedagogical competence during the preparation of the subjects of pedagogical-psychological basis, general and professional didactics of relevant approbation subjects and during continuous pedagogical practice in each year of the 2nd level of university study in the total extent of at least 10 weeks under the supervision of erudite experts from practice. He manages independent planning and design of teaching in the school classroom, its implementation and reflection in profile educational areas.

In addition, the graduate can perform the profession of methodology for teaching specific subjects and subject groups, a government official for education and training in primary and secondary schools. However, he can also continue in the third degree of university studies.

What to Expect

The study program is a set of subjects and a set of rules compiled in such a way that successful completion of the subjects while maintaining the above rules allows the student to obtain a university degree. For each study program, a recommended study plan is set, which is compiled so that by completing it, the student meets the conditions for successful completion of studies within its standard length. The creation of the study plan is usually based on the modular (block) principle in order to enable students to continuously adjust the focus within the chosen field of study and expand the scope of the study. The study plan is divided into compulsory, optional, and elective subjects. The subject consists of individual independent educational activities or their combination, which are aimed at providing education in a defined area.

The profile subjects of the study plan are compulsory or optional subjects and the student will acquire the knowledge and skills that are essential for the completion of the study program.

The updating of study programs reflecting the development in the field is realized by elective subjects, which enable the use of the short-term presence of non-faculty experts in the teaching process. The inclusion of several (selective) subjects in the programs is a response to the constructive comments of students and their interest in a particular area.

When creating the study plan, the mission and goals set by the faculty in the field of science and research and in the field of education, which are stated in the Faculty's Long-Term Plan, are taken into account. The study program is prepared in accordance with the needs of the practice and monitors the applicability of graduates.

Master’s Thesis

With the diploma thesis, the student has to demonstrate the ability to independently acquire theoretical and practical knowledge based on the current state of science and creatively apply, use and develop them. The final thesis will be prepared by the student under the guidance of the thesis supervisor. The supervisor of the final thesis will prepare a written report on the final thesis and propose its evaluation. The final work is assessed by the opponent.
