Bachelor of Education (Honours) / Bachelor of Commerce

Monash University

If you are attracted to the idea of introducing young people to the big ideas in commerce, but also want the option of a professional career in commerce, this double degree course is for you. It will prepare you for a rewarding career in primary or secondary schools. Students specialising in secondary education will qualify as specialist teachers of accounting, economics or management studies, while students specialising in primary education will be qualified to teach across the school curriculum but with an in-depth knowledge of commerce related fields. Either way you will have a firm foundation in the business skills that are increasingly important in the school sector. This course leads to two separate degrees. Depending upon your specialisation, you will be awarded one of, the Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Primary Education, or the Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Secondary Education, and the Bachelor of Commerce. You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either Education or Commerce separately. In Commerce you can select from a range of majors including accounting, econometrics, finance, management studies, sustainability or other majors that aligns with your career aspirations. Our graduates become leaders in teaching practice, but beyond this, they also lead in public debate, policy development and community action across the world. You can also pursue a career in a wide range of professions that draw on your complementary studies in commerce and education, perhaps working for government in the economics of education and training, making a career in school or university management, or undertaking teacher workforce development and research.
