Transform your future

Southern Cross University is home to a vibrant education research community, with leading experts in the fields of pedagogy and environmental education.

Our Faculty of Education has three main research clusters - Sustainability, Environment and the Arts in Education (SEAE), the Early Years Research Lab and the TeachLab Research Group.

SEAE engages in creative, trans-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. The Early Years Research Lab represents the Faculty’s strength in early years research and the early years workforce.

In our specialist postgraduate degrees – including the Bachelor of Education (Honours), Master of Education, and Doctor of Philosophy – you have the opportunity to undertake in-depth investigations of specific areas of interest, or design a major research project.
