Master of Teaching




Courses Overview

What will I learn?
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. 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.
The Master of Teaching is available on-campus in Hobart and fully online- by distance. Not sure if you want to study online or on-campus? We offer flexible study options that allow you to choose how and where you study, depending on your needs. 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.
