The Master of Teaching (Secondary) is for graduates who want to become secondary school teachers and have an appropriate undergraduate degree. Graduates may be eligible for employment in Catholic and other faith-based schools, independent and government high schools and other secondary schools.
Depending on your undergraduate degree, this Master’s degree will prepare you to teach specialist areas including:
- Visual arts, media arts, music and/or drama
- Economics and business
- Humanities and social sciences
- Languages other than English
- Health and physical education and outdoor education
- ICT and digital technologies
- Religious education.
It enables students to adopt a research-based approach to reflective practice. They’ll be able to consider the implications and applications of this approach to their own professional development and its contribution to their students’ learning and wellbeing.
The course provides valuable professional experience through a variety of school and community-based placements during the course.
Students who undertake the Master of Teaching (Secondary) may also concurrently complete the Graduate Certificate in Religious Education to gain accreditation to teach religious education in Catholic schools.
