What is educational science?

In everyday life, educational science is often associated with school or family. In the study of educational science, however, students deal with theories about the conscious and unconscious processes of human action, forms of socialization and worlds of experience.

This means the entire life span from childhood to old age, the entire spectrum of formal, non-formal and informal educational processes. Teaching and research focus in particular on the relationship between generations and genders, cultures, different living conditions and abilities.
