Master of Education
If you are a graduate with either a background in teaching and/or educational administration, or have a professional interest in education, this course is designed for you. With flexible study and subject options, you can undertake professional development in your area of interest. Specialist areas of study include administration, leadership and management, health education, nurse education, language and literacy, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), applied linguistics, classroom management and discipline, counselling, organisational change and student advocacy and well-being.
This is a teacher development course and is appropriate if you're teaching at any level. If you are already a registered teacher, it will add a specialist qualification or lead to further study opportunities in the broad field of education. It is not a professional-entry teaching program.
Applicants with a three-year Bachelor's degree or equivalent qualification are eligible for entry to the full two-year program. Applicants with a four-year teaching qualification, Honours degree or a relevant Graduate Diploma from a recognised university or institution are eligible for Advanced Standing entry to the one-year program.
NB: Meeting minimum prerequisites does not guarantee an offer of a place. Entry into all La Trobe courses is based on competitive selection and there may be limited places available.
Graduates may work in positions such as adult educator, leading teacher, and lecturer/tutor in universities.
