Bachelors of Arts / Education (Secondary)

Become a secondary school teacher with both teaching skills and specialist arts knowledge, and practise your skills in real classrooms.

This dual degree will give you a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of teaching secondary school, and specialist skills in the arts.

In the Bachelor of Education program, you'll combine university study with practical experience. You'll explore how to teach and how people learn, and study topics from two teaching areas. You'll then apply your knowledge in real classrooms.

Throughout the program you’ll be immersed in hands-on workshops, school visits and supervised placements, and gain a strong understanding of day-to-day life in a secondary school.

By combining your education training with a Bachelor of Arts, you'll gain both teaching skills and specialist subject knowledge. With one of the most comprehensive course offerings in Australia, you'll have the opportunity to explore the subjects you love by choosing from study areas across the humanities, social sciences and languages, helping you build the portfolio of capabilities you need to become an expert teacher.
