The Bachelor of Education (Honours) is a four-year course that prepares you to be a leader in education. You can focus your studies in early childhood, primary or secondary education - or even a combination of these.

Areas of specialisation

You can specialise to teach in the following areas and graduate with an award that reflects your expertise:

Study themes

Education at Monash is underpinned by four study themes to ensure you graduate fully prepared to face the thought provoking challenges of education in the 21st century in Australia and across the globe.

Education Studies

Develop a comprehensive understanding of the theoretical foundations of education and teaching and learning in varied education settings. You will develop the knowledge and skills to support your progress towards taking on leadership roles.

Curriculum Studies

Develop knowledge of how children and young people learn in particular learning areas. Gain skills in designing, planning and implementing engaging and innovative learning experiences – meeting the needs of diverse learners.

Discipline Studies

Develop content knowledge of the areas you will teach in schools or other education settings. For some specialisations your discipline and curriculum studies are integrated, and in others you study specified discipline units. If you are studying a double degree, the partner degree provides your discipline studies.

Professional Studies

Develop your professional capacity through practical teaching experience and research studies. This experience increases your understanding of the complex field of education, and may provide a pathway for research and further learning.
