Ask most teachers why they love their job and it won’t be the pay; or the holidays (that they have to spend doing marking while everyone thinks they are relaxing). Many teachers will tell you they chose their profession and they stick with it because of the kids – the students they interact with every day.
Making a difference in the education and upbringing of the next generation of young Australians is a privilege, a responsibility and also a source of – at least occasional – joy for teachers. Southern Cross offers combined degree programs which enable you to graduate with specialised skills, knowledge and experience teaching whatever age group of students you choose.
There are four Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Education programs to choose from:
