Master of Teaching (Secondary)

Murdoch University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00125J

Whether you want to travel the world, coach young people or inspire the next generation of thinkers, this degree will give you valuable experience and a competitive edge to launch your secondary teaching career. This will set you up with the specialist knowledge, skills and capabilities to teach students from Years 7-12 in a teaching area you’re passionate about. When choosing to major in Science or humanities, and social sciences (HaSS), you will be expected to teach all components of the curriculum for Years 7-10 and then your specialised area for Years 11 and 12. You will also choose a second teaching area (known as a minor) from these options, except for Health and Physical Education, which is only offered as a major/minor combination. Taking on a minor study area means you’ll become qualified to teach students from Years 7-10 in this area. Minors in Science and HaSS require you to teach all components of the curriculum. By having qualifications in two teaching areas, you’ll be highly employable when you graduate.
