Education and teaching specialization

The aim of the Education  - Physics and Chemistry Teaching specialization is to provide a coherent course that allows students to learn about teaching and the teaching profession while they consolidate their knowledge of the discipline. Future graduates can thereby master the scientific content, including the most recent scientific advances, and acquire the know-how and practical skills required for progressive teaching and/or communication.

The specialization is intended for students who have followed the M1 in physics (main subject) and can show they have a basic knowledge of chemistry. In M2, it involves intensive experimental training in physics and chemistry, professional training based on an internship in a school, and the practice of scientific communication, by preparing for the Physics and Chemistry CAPES competitive examination.

Career opportunities

As the name of the specialization implies, graduates mainly become physics and chemistry teachers. Other possible career prospects lie in public service entrance examinations, scientific education outside of schools and scientific communications within various bodies (research organizations, etc.). Further studies may be undertaken to prepare for the French agrégation, or in journalism schools or doctoral schools in education or physics.


This specialization, common to both the Master of Physics and of Chemistry at Sorbonne Université, is organized in partnership with the Sorbonne University ESPE (teacher training college).  The teaching staff is varied – lecturers, trainers and secondary teachers – which allows a good liaison between the scientific and pedagogical aspects of the course.


This specialization is for students who have completed the M1 in physics with some bi-disciplinary training, for example those who took the “teaching” program offered in semester 2 at Sorbonne Université. Other eligible students : graduates of another M2, PhD graduates, physics engineers. Students whose main discipline is chemistry are advised to enroll in the corresponding master’s course.
