Study Research in Education
Southern Cross University is home to a vibrant education research community with leading experts in the fields of pedagogy and environmental education.
The Faculty of Education has three main research clusters - Sustainability, Environment and the Arts in Education (SEAE), Early Years Research Lab and the TeachLab Research Group. SEAE engages in creative, anti-disciplinary research across sustainability, environment and the Arts in education while TeachLab leads research in school improvement, leadership, social policy, educational technology, teacher professional development and initial teacher education. Our newest group, Early years research Lab represents SCU’s Faculty of Education’s research strength in early years research, and the early years workforce.
Specialist postgraduate degrees including Bachelor of Education (Honours), Master of Education, Doctor of Education, and Doctor of Philosophy offer students the opportunity to investigate the area that interests them in-depth or to design a major research project that suits their goals.
These degrees are particularly suited to experienced educators who want to advance their careers and be part of a community of scholars who are recognised for their contribution to education that informs public policy, school improvement, leadership development, discipline expertise, curriculum and pedagogy.
