About secondary education

ACU Secondary education students sitting at an outdoor table on campus

Help shape tomorrow’s adults into compassionate, responsible citizens. Our secondary education degrees combine core teaching studies with specialist teaching areas so your students will be inspired by your knowledge, passion and expertise for your area of specialisation. And as you progress through your degree, your extensive and varied professional experience placements will ensure you’ll become adept and confident preparing, managing and inspiring a class on your own.

Become a subject expert

Spend the next four years following your passion so you can take your knowledge into the classroom. During your degree you’ll be given a thorough foundation of innovative and best-practice teaching techniques, but you’ll also focus on two particular areas of study that will become your subject teaching areas, within humanities, technology, visual arts or mathematics streams.
