The Master of Teaching (Primary or Secondary) course is structured in three parts. Orientation studies, relevant across all specializations, and specialist education studies come together and are applied in context in professional experience and inquiry.
- Part A: Orientation studies
- Part B: Specialist education studies
- Part C: Applied professional practice
For primary education, you will develop teaching skills and knowledge in such learning areas as mathematics, the arts, English, history, science, health and well-being, and information and communication technologies.
The Master of Teaching (Secondary) focuses on adolescent learning and the nature of education, classroom teaching and practice in schools, education and its relationship to society and planning, implementation and evaluation of the school curriculum. This program is equivalent to a two-year program undertaken within 1.5 years’ time.
Professional experience placements in educational settings relevant to your teaching specialisation will enable you to connect the theoretical components your course with practical aspects of teaching and learning under the valuable guidance of practitioners. You will also study the complex and powerful role that teachers have as leaders in classroom, school, and community settings, with the power to change, and develop strategies to enable you to take your place as an active contributor to shaping education locally and globally.
Completed bachelor’s degree
You must have a completed undergraduate degree with different disciplines, as primary teachers must have general knowledge in several different subjects.
For the Secondary programs, you must also meet the requirements for two teaching methods. The university is generally looking for four to five full credits in a first method and another three to four full credits in a second method. For example, if you would like English as your first teaching method and history as your second, you are required to have completed five full credits in English and four full credits in history within your undergraduate degree.
