CSU's Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) is an integrated program leading to the award of two degrees. It was developed in discussion with the NSW Department of Education and Training and the Victorian Department of Education to meet the growing need for qualified English teachers in high schools.
CSU's Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) was developed to address the current shortage of secondary English teachers in both Victoria and NSW as these shortages are projected to increase over the next 10 years.
This course includes practical experience through workplace learning.
Meritorious students may also apply for acceptance into the Bachelor of Educational Research (Honours) or the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) program.
CSU's Bachelor of Educational Research (Honours) allows students to select from a wide range of methodologies providing considerable flexibility in research design. Entry to this course is via the Graduate Certificate in Educational Research, which provides an introduction to educational research, an overview of common educational research methods, followed by a more in-depth focus on qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, and the development of a research proposal and a literature review.
CSU's Bachelor of Arts (Honours) builds on analytical and critical thinking skills in a specialised field chosen by the individual student, enhancing communication and research skills and preparing for further postgraduate study.
