Master of Teaching (Secondary)

Course Code:


Course Convenor:

Mr Jason Hinze

The Master of Teaching (Secondary) is a two-year, graduate-entry master’s degree designed to prepare students to teach at the secondary level. It is a highly practical course, with hands-on classroom experience from the first semester, which qualifies and prepares graduates to competently teach years 7 - 12. The course also has a strong research-based theoretical approach, with opportunities for students to explore and critically analyse a wide range of educational literature and research.

As an alternative to on-campus classes, the course is also available in online mode, providing flexibility and accessibility.

During the course, you will engage in three professional experience opportunities. These are undertaken at various secondary schools to enable the application of theory in a practical setting.

Two years full-time or four years part-time
