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.

Economics is the science of decision making. As individuals, communities, companies and governments, we face choices every day, weighing up the costs and benefits of our decisions. With the ongoing momentum of globalisation, development, economic/financial/cultural integration and increasing pressure for ecological sustainability, economics remains the key element. Economics determines much of today's social and political landscape, and students trained in this field are exceptionally well-positioned to play a leading part in the future direction of business, government and society.
