Course Description

This program prepares students to teach in primary or secondary settings. Students undertake a foundation first year and then undertake studies in either primary or secondary education from Year 1/Trimester 3. Students undertake professional practice which includes observation and participation in schools, practice teaching and community field studies.

Foundation (First) Year: All courses in the foundation year of the Bachelor of Education are offered across all three campuses.

Primary Education: Curriculum areas include history and geography, the way language develops and works, mathematics, science and technology, health and physical education, and the arts. Students studying Primary Education may also take a major in either Health and Physical Education or Special Needs Education or select one of the available minors. Core courses in the Primary Education Major are offered across all three campuses (Gold Coast, Logan, Mt Gravatt).

Students may need to travel to another campus to undertake courses specific to a particular second Major or Minor that are not offered on their home campus.

Secondary Education: Students undertake studies in two teaching areas or one teaching area and one major (conditions apply to some teaching area combinations). Core courses in the Secondary Education Major are offered on the Gold Coast and Mt Gravatt campuses.
