Program description

Master of Teaching

The Master of Teaching is a pre-service teaching degree that will give you the skills and knowledge to teach in a primary or secondary school setting. The degree is designed to build upon tertiary qualifications and experience, enabling students to complete a teaching qualification in as little as 2 years. This course is accredited through the Tasmanian Teachers Registration Board, and is recognised in all Australian states and territories.

Master of Teaching students can specialise in primary or secondary teaching.

The secondary teaching specialisation requires students to choose two curriculum teaching areas, which are determined by the discipline(s) undertaken in the student’s undergraduate degree.

You will be required to undertake a number of Professional Experience placements totalling 60 days. This will give you the opportunity to apply the theoretical and practical skills that you have learnt in a safe and supportive environment.

Course objectives

Students who undertake the Master of Teaching pre-service teacher education course will graduate with a professional qualification and preparation that meets national expectations and standards and makes them favoured for recruitment in systems throughout Tasmania and Australia. Through experiencing an internationalised curriculum our students will graduate with a global perspective and an enhanced capacity to teach overseas and experience the world whilst working. The program is informed by core theoretical knowledge, evidence-based practice and underpinned by a strong theory-practice nexus enacted in collaboration with appropriate employing authorities.
