About Bachelor of Education (Secondary) (Honours) at University of Newcastle, Australia

A good teacher can have a profound effect on a young person's outlook on education, their career aspirations and life generally. If you have a real commitment to helping young people get the most out of their education, a passion for learning, rapport with people and a sense of humour, then you will find teaching a truly rewarding professional career where you can make a difference.

Graduates of this program will be able to seek employment as 7-12 (Secondary) teachers in and beyond the New South Wales Government, Catholic, and Independent school sectors. The program aims to develop graduates who are inspirational teachers with the capability to act professionally, ethically and effectively in their Secondary school destinations; insightful scholars with the capability to engage in rational enquiry into curriculum, policy and practice; and innovative leaders with the capability to play a constructive role in public discourse on and beyond education.

The new Bachelor of Education (Secondary) (Honours) possesses inherent flexibility of choice and pathways to specialties in more than one field, significantly improving employment prospects. As with the Bachelor of Education (Secondary) program, areas of study include Aboriginal Studies, Ancient History, Business Studies, Computing Technology, Design Technologies, Drama, Economics, Engineering Technology, English, Food Technology, Geography, Graphics and Multimedia Arts, Health and Physical Education, Languages, Maths, Modern History, Science, Society and Culture, Studies of Religion, Textile Technology and Visual Arts. However, the Bachelor of Education (Secondary) (Honours) program places a special emphasis on preparing graduates who can critically evaluate education research, and have the capacity to design, implement and evaluate their own educational research project.

For Honours graduates this degree is a pathway into higher degree research programs, such as the Master of Philosophy and Doctor of Philosophy. The Honours degree provides specific opportunities for graduates to pursue careers in educational research, education publication writing or editing, education policy analysis, as well as the typical professions for Education graduates including high school teacher (in subject specific areas), health and fitness trainer, community educator, education consultant, curriculum developer, educational materials developer, curriculum evaluator, and educational administrator.
