Applicants must hold an approved undergraduate bachelor degree or equivalent qualification with topics that enable them to teach to Year 12 in at least one subject specialisation and to Year 10 in a second subject specialisation offered by the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work.
Specialisations normally offered are: English, Drama, Mathematics, Modern Languages (restricted to Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian, German and Modern Greek), Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Earth Sciences), Visual Arts, Health Education, Outdoor Education, Physical Education, History, Geography, Business Studies, Legal Studies, TESOL, Nutrition, Tourism and Psychology.
Not all teaching specialisations are offered every year. If your teaching area is Physical Education, you must apply for the Master of Teaching (Secondary) – Physical Education (2CM227) to be considered.
Note that in South Australia, to teach to Year 10, four undergraduate semester topics in the teaching area are needed; and to teach to Year 12, six undergraduate semester topics in the teaching area are needed. Not all of the above curriculum areas are taught throughout Years 8 to 12.
Please download the Master of Teaching flyer for more information on teaching specialisations.
The Master of Teaching is a pre-service teaching degree and admission normally will not be granted to applicants who already hold a teaching qualification. Selection is based on academic merit.
