About religious education

ACU has a proud history as a leading provider of teacher education in Australia, and our Catholic tradition ensures our religious education graduates are highly sought-after. Whether you’re a trained teacher, education administrator, or someone who wants to enter the industry, our programs will prepare you for positions of responsibility in the field of religious education at schools, parishes, education offices, or diocesan-level organisations.

If you’ve completed an undergraduate degree in another study area, you could choose to advance your studies further with a masters degree or higher degree research.
