About this course

This pre-service teacher education program is available only as a dual degree. Students completing a dual degree have the opportunity to complete two degrees in less time than if each was studied separately. The Bachelor of Education (Secondary) offers school based learning and draws on the latest research into effective teaching, ensuring graduates are well equipped to teach. Students completing a dual degree with education are prepared for secondary school teaching, or training in business or industry. Teaching is a challenging and rewarding career, with secondary school teachers in demand worldwide. Teaching areas include Asian languages (Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian), drama, economics, English, English as a second language, European languages (French, German, Spanish), geography, history, mathematics, media studies, music, learning support, studies in religion and study of society.

Criminology is an interdisciplinary field in the social and behavioural sciences, drawing on the areas of sociology, psychology and psychiatry, anthropology and law. The criminology major at UQ is distinguished by its theoretical and methodological focus on crime and public policy. The major is strongly underpinned by sociological theories, and students undertaking this major become highly trained in social research methods and critical thinking, and learn to examine crime and its regulation within the context of social, economic and political shifts in contemporary society. The major is strongly cross-disciplinary and enables students to combine criminology with other fields of study such as sociology, political science, law, psychology, history and philosophy.
