Master of Education
This course structure contains information about the units which comprise the course as well as the credit points required to successfully complete it.
All students are required to complete 120 credit points (8 units) in the degree. Required units include an applied research methods/methods of investigation unit (RES5101) and an advanced seminar unit (EDU6195). Students can then choose any six other units drawn from a range of areas in the School of Education:
- Behaviour Management
- Educational Leadership
- Learning Difficulties
- Literacy Education
- Special Education
- Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
Two independent studies units (EDU6188 and EDU6189) are available for students who wish to pursue an area of interest in some depth. These units involve the study of a selected topic of interest. Students may conduct a school/work-related project, a small piece of research or develop and/or evaluate an educational resource, such as a curriculum module, software package, assessment resource, policy document, or a reasoned professional reflection or critique.
It is recommended that students complete the two required units (RES5101 and EDU6195) and then select other units to complete their program. Students who wish to conduct small scale research as part of an independent study unit must complete the required units before attempting the independent study unit.
