Master of Education (By Coursework and Research)

Today's educators are expected to be lifelong learners, able to adapt to global changes in education where routines and boundaries are often challenged. You will explore the relationship between research and practice, encouraging you to analyse issues of interest to you.

There are many research areas offered in this program including; early childhood, primary and secondary education, gifted and special education, information and communication technology in education, international education, leadership and policy development, literacy studies, mathematics and science education, music education, school and organisational leadership, work and learning studies, educational and developmental psychology, counselling, mentoring and coaching, professional development studies, teaching English as a foreign or second language and sport and outdoor recreation.
