Course summary

Primary and secondary school teachers fulfil a vital community role by preparing young people to become positive and active citizens in modern society. This combined degree produces teachers who understand the attributes of inclusive education, the development and learning of young people, and the importance of life-long learning, all of which are essential qualities for excellent teaching practice.

Graduates can teach in both primary and secondary schools (Kindergarten to Year 12), significantly expanding their career opportunities. Students complete curriculum studies in six key learning areas for primary school teaching and one secondary teaching subject by majoring in English, Mathematics, Geography or Modern History.

School-based, practical teaching experiences enable students to put theory into practice as they observe and reflect on the dynamics of the classroom. These experiences also enable students to become acquainted with the formal and informal aspects of what occurs in classrooms and schools.
