Our Bachelor of Education (Secondary) is a well-rounded undergraduate program that combines theory, the latest teaching technology, and plenty of hands-on classroom experience. Working from a rigorous and practical curriculum, you will acquire the academic skills needed to teach secondary school students. In addition, you will be required to choose one major teaching area such as English, Humanities and Social Sciences, Mathematics, Science or Religious Education. You will complete eight courses in your chosen major area, plus four courses in your chosen area of specialisation.An integral part of your degree is the 32 weeks of supervised teaching (practicum) experience. This is divided into two weeks of classroom immersion and teacher assistance in your first year; one term with a special focus on your Learning Area Major in both your second and third years; one term with a special focus on your Learning Area Specialisation in your third year; and an internship in your final year which focuses on both your Learning Area Major and Specialisation, as well as Religious Education if you have chosen to complete your accreditation to teach Religious Education.
