What will I learn?

Our Bachelor of Education (Secondary)/Bachelor of Behavioral Science is a well-rounded undergraduate program that combines theory, the latest teaching technology, and plenty of hands-on classroom experience. Working from a rigorous and practical curriculum, you will acquire the academic skills needed to teach secondary school students. In addition, you will be required to choose one major teaching area such as English, Humanities and Social Sciences, Mathematics, Science or Religious Education and complete eight courses in this chosen major.

The Bachelor of Behavioral Science component of the double degree combines elements of psychology, political science, cultural studies and sociology. Integrating specialized knowledge developed in these social science disciplines, and with a strong focus on critical psychology, forges a connection between traditional psychology and social work. You will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to work with those who may be experiencing marginalization or disadvantage. You will also develop an understanding and respect for social and cultural diversity.

This double degree will give you the skills and knowledge you need to operate effectively in an educational setting.

An integral part of your degree is the 32 weeks of supervised teaching (practicum) experience. This is divided into two weeks of classroom immersion and teacher assistance in your first year; one term with a special focus on your Learning Area Major in your second year; one term with a special focus on your second Learning Area in your fourth year; and an internship in your final year which focuses on both your Learning Area Majors, as well as Religious Education if you have chosen to complete your accreditation to teach Religious Education.
