About this program

This four-year specialist degree will give you a professional qualification to teach in secondary schools in the area of personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE), along with a second teaching area of specialisation.

Service learning and community engagement are key features of this degree. In all four years of the course you will be given service learning opportunities and work with educational, health and sporting organisations. Totalling 140 hours, this will supplement your professional experience placement in schools.

Work-based placements (totalling 560 hours) begin in the first year of the course and the amount of responsibility and duration of the placements progressively increases until the final placement, when you will be competent to teach under minimal supervision.

Our Health and Physical Education program, established in 1939, is considered one of the best in Australia. If you have a real passion for health, sport and the science of movement, this is the perfect course for you. It offers a range of unique experiences, including the opportunity to specialise in PDHPE and an additional teaching area. Once you complete the degree, you will be qualified to work in a variety of fields.
