Do you want to develop your professional expertise and advance your career in education? The Master of Education addresses the professional learning needs of educators, educational administrators, managers, policy makers and others interested or involved in learning and education in the wider community. Step beyond where you are now and position yourself as a thought leader, as you connect with research excellence and transform how you practice.
This course addresses learning in schools, workplaces and community. It connects research and practice to make you a stronger thinker, an engaged practitioner and an advanced specialist. You’ll broaden your knowledge of key learning constructs, advance your capacity as a professional inquirer and deepen your professional learning in one of the following specialisations:
- Adult learning
- Applied behaviour analysis
- Digital learning
- Early childhood education
- Educational leadership and policy
- Expert teaching practice
- General education studies
- Inclusive and special education.
In the Master of Education you can graduate with a broadly applicable qualification, by choosing general education studies and selecting units to suit your requirements. Alternatively, you can choose one of the seven other specialisations and graduate with a qualification highlighting your particular expertise. The flexible structure means you do not have to finalise your decision before being admitted to the course.
Flexible course delivery also allows you to continue working while completing the course. You can choose to engage via a fully online offering or to combine online studies with face-to-face workshops.
Graduate outcomes are wide-ranging, and are closely tied to the different specialisations and your specific career goals.
