This fun and creative four-year double degree in secondary education and arts will see students develop into a knowledgeable and informed classroom-ready teacher, qualified for employment across both state and independent schools. Students will study a choice of two teaching streams from a range of arts and humanities disciplines, including English languages, history, business studies, the creative arts, geography, religious studies, psychology, media studies, legal studies, and more. Thanks to a series of Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) units, students will put their teaching theories to the test in a real-world environment, regularly engaging with secondary school students across the entire range of year levels. At the completion of the course, students will be ready to hit the ground running as a newly qualified teacher, confident in helping to enthuse young people aged 12 to 18 about a range of subjects across the arts spectrum.
