Applicants for the Master of Teaching (Special Education) (Primary R-7 Stream) must hold an approved undergraduate degree or equivalent qualification.
Applicants for the Master of Teaching (Special Education) (Secondary Stream) 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 (preferably two) 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, 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 (Special Education) (Secondary) - Physical Education (2CM228) to be considered.
Note that in South Australia, to teach to Year 10, four undergraduate semester topics in the specialisation are needed; and to teach to Year 12, six undergraduate semester topics in the specialisation are needed. Not all of the above curriculum areas are taught throughout Years 8 to 12.
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. Please note that different teaching courses may have additional entry requirements. Check the website for details. Selection is based on academic merit.
