Do you want a career that provides the opportunity to inspire and nurture future generations and which allows you to share your expertise with young learners? If so, the Master of Teaching is for you. It is designed for applicants with an undergraduate degree in any discipline who want a rewarding career as a global educator and teacher.
Our innovative curriculum combines theory and professional experience, providing you with the knowledge, skills and professional values to become an effective educator. You can choose to specialise in early childhood, primary or secondary education – or a combination of these.
Through engagement with contemporary ideas and practices, you will develop the professional knowledge and skills needed to foster the learning of students of various ages and diverse needs. As a result, you will become an effective educator, able to design learning experiences that ensure your future students have the right balance of challenge and support to progress in areas such as the arts and music, English, mathematics, physical education, health and wellbeing, science and humanities.
You will engage with current education priorities and policies, and learn how to apply these in practice to develop a set of professional values and commitments that will position you as a research-informed future education leader.
You will gain professional experience by completing a minimum of 60 days of teaching practice throughout the course in urban, rural, remote or international settings and schools. This includes the opportunity to gain teaching experience in locations such as China, Cook Islands, India, Italy, Malaysia and South Africa.
An education degree provides an excellent basis for diverse careers in the classroom, in government or in private enterprise. When you choose the Master of Teaching at Monash University, you will graduate ready to transform the lives of others through learning.

This means that these qualifications will be accepted for early childhood teacher registration in Victoria and most other Australian states and territories, which qualifies you to work as a teacher in licensed preschools and childcare centres in Victoria. If you plan to teach in a preschool or kindergarten setting then you’ll need to register with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT).
All primary and secondary education specialisations are accredited by the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) using the national accreditation standards.
