Education and Arts - D3002

Arts at Monash provides a comprehensive gateway to a wide range of fascinating areas of study across the arts, humanities and social sciences. Pair this with a degree in Education and you can share that fascination with the next generation of young people - inspiring and engaging young developing minds.

This double degree course will prepare you either for primary or secondary school teaching. Students specialising in secondary education will qualify as subject specialist teachers in two secondary teaching areas, while students specialising in primary education will be qualified to teach across the school curriculum but with particular expertise in one or two fields.

This course leads to two separate degrees. Depending upon your specialisation, you will be awarded one of:

  • the Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Primary Education, or
  • the Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Secondary Education,

and also

  • the Bachelor of Arts.

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Education (Honours)/Bachelor of Arts) and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either Education or in an Arts field.

Within the Arts degree, a wide choice of majors and minors, spanning literary studies, politics, music, history, geography, sociology, indigenous studies, linguistics, film and screen, communications, and a range of language and cultural areas, will provide you with a rich repertoire of study pathways. Taken together with your education studies, these will prepare you for a highly rewarding career.

Our graduates become leaders in teaching practice, but beyond this, they also lead in public debate, policy development and community action across the world. You can also pursue a career in a wide range of professions that draw on your major studies in arts and which are complemented by your education studies, perhaps publishing, editing and writing, community program development or education journalism.

All primary and secondary education specialisations are accredited by the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) using the national accreditation standards. This means that these qualifications will be accepted for school teacher registration in Victoria and all other Australian states and territories.
