The master’s study programme in Teaching Russian in Secondary Schools, designed as an academically oriented double curriculum study, primarily focuses on the linguistic aspect and places it in a broader social-cultural and didactic context. The teacher training component of the programme comprises modules introducing into the teaching profession and an extensive pedagogical practice. The design of the structured teacher training course is based on the concept of competence-based teacher training – a model characterised by lifelong teacher training and the school as a learning institution. Double curriculum study not only increases the graduates’ career prospects in the education system, but also broadens their opportunities for utilising the acquired education outside the education sector. The great capacity of the teacher training programmes to combine with other programmes of study significantly helps the student’s individual development.
Graduates of the programme in Teaching Russian in Secondary Schools are equipped to teach in primary and secondary schools in their respective fields, as well as other related fields; furthermore, they are equipped for positions in the education system requiring a full teaching qualification; they can also work in the media, publishing houses, communication agencies, state administration, and scientific institutions, holding various different positions that require fully developed professional competencies in the respective field.
