Program Overview

The Bachelor of Education (Primary) prepares you to teach professionally in a range of primary school settings. This course is designed to be interactive, practical, and to have academic rigour. This degree covers all areas of the primary curriculum from Reception to Year Seven, including English, Arts, Technology, Primary Mathematics, Primary History and Geography, Integrating Science and Technologies, Health and Physical Education. 

Alongside the vast range of elective subjects, from July 2017, students in the Bachelor of Education programs will have option of completing a Science Minor. This block of subjects will provide a specialisation in STEM-related teaching.

Christian values form the foundation of the way we learn about primary students and their potential. The tertiary course content enables students to prepare for a career in teaching which aligns with their Christian worldview, regardless of the education system in which they choose to teach.
