The Master of Teaching - Secondary offered by the University of Wollongong is for university graduates from non-teaching courses who want to become secondary school teachers (Years 7 to 12). On completion of this degree, you will obtain a formal qualification making you eligible to teach specialised subject areas to students aged 13 to 18 in public, religious and private schools.


The Master of Teaching - Secondary offered by the University of Wollongong  produces high quality teachers with an understanding of diversity in the classroom and with strong connections to school communities.  

This program focuses on building teaching skills through a professional experience immersion program in your very first session, and regular professional experience periods throughout the degree. You will complete 60 days of professional experience (PEX), including the option to complete one PEX in a rural or remote area of NSW. There are also opportunities to undertake international immersion programs that, while not counted as a PEX, allow you to travel overseas, visit schools and develop your understanding of people and cultures.

Your learning will be supported by online teaching, forums, podcasts and video streamed lectures, on-campus tutorials and in-school activities. You will benefit from the expertise of local teachers and a range of workshops to develop your skills in communication, technology-enhanced learning, working with parents, designing assessment and conducting school-based research.

During your degree you will explore the concepts of teaching and learning to build your professional skills in your selected teaching areas. Teaching areas include: English, Mathematics, Science, Visual Arts, Music, Modern or Ancient History, Geography, Society and Culture or Aboriginal Studies, Legal Studies and Business Studies or Economics.  The methods offered are subject to demand, meaning that not all methods are guaranteed to be offered each year.
