Masters and PhD Studies

Master of Education

The Master of Education is ideal for practising professionals in a broad range of fields related to education and youth policy & research.

The degree offers several streams, allowing students to complete the degree through a mix of coursework and research, totally by research, or totally by coursework.? The Master of Education has one-year streams (Streams 100, 100A and 100B) and one and a half year streams (Streams150, 150A and 150B). Eligibility for each stream depends on the level of the applicant's previous qualifications.

Through your subject selections you can tailor you Master of Education to provide you with an opportunity to understand and contribute to contemporary education policy in Australia and internationally, by developing essential skills in policy analysis, researching young people in schools, teachers, school communities, and critical evaluation of wider policy issues affecting schools and other social institutions involved in the transition to independent adulthood.

The Master of Education allows flexibility in design according to the personal professional development needs of each student, and recognises that practitioners increasingly want to undertake research in their own environment with the aim of developing policy and programs which make a difference! Candidates are encouraged to negotiate a program that will be relevant to their work interests. The Masters Program can be undertaken on a full-time or part-time basis.
