What will you learn?

The aim of the study programme is to provide young researchers, or experts in the decision-making sphere (i.e. conceptualists in language or foreign language education, etc.) with high-quality academic preparation based on very good traditions of domestic and international theoretical and empirical research relevant to educational policy and practice in the field of foreign language education.

The concept of the doctoral study programme Didactics of Foreign Language also pursues objectives of a more general nature, in particular the need to support the formation of a common theoretical background of subject didactics as a qualitatively new approach to (general) didactic thinking and also contribute to ongoing processes of teacher professionalisation.

Practical training

Compulsory teaching activity performed at a university, typically at the Faculty of Education of MU, is an integral part of the study programme. The maximum participation is 150 lessons during the studies. Beyond that the students can also teach at elementary or secondary schools, or can perform other pedagogical activities (e.g. design study materials, prepare lessons, design tests, develop digital support).

Career opportunities

The graduate can find employment as a researcher in educational research institutes, university lecturer, consultant in the field of language education, author and assessor of foreign language coursebooks and other curricular and didactic teaching materials, designer of language education concepts.
