This degree provides students with knowledge and skills in a range of disciplines drawn from the humanities, social sciences and education that will enable graduates to apply for registration as a teacher of Humanities curriculum areas (including the option of second languages), in addition to a second teaching area drawn from another field of study. Students can select a second teaching area from a range of specialist electives to suit their interests.
The education studies component is practice focused with students undertaking professional experience in schools and other learning sites generally from the second semester of their course. Students are also encouraged to undertake field/professional experience in remote schools. External students can normally complete their professional experience in their home towns. Indigenous perspectives are a particular focus, and students can undertake studies in Indigenous languages and literacy as well as examining specific strategies for enhancing educational outcomes for Indigenous children.
Students are encouraged to review the employer eligibility requirements as they can vary state to state.
