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.

Psychology is a broad ranging discipline that includes the scientific study of human behaviour and mental processes, and the systematic application of this knowledge in specific contexts such as mental health (clinical psychology), work (organisational psychology), education or sport. Many people who study psychology will not go on to become psychologists, but will find their training in psychology to be highly relevant and useful in their lives and work. Those who do become psychologists may work in a variety of settings including hospitals, schools, government bodies, large corporations, or in private practice.
