Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary)
About the course
This double degree offers majors in:
* Analytical Chemistry
In addition to one of the majors listed, this course comprises core compulsory subjects, a minor sequence and a number of education subjects. Your double degree qualification allows you to be a qualified secondary science teacher from Years 7-12.
Students will develop an appreciation of the interdisciplinary nature of much of modern scientific investigation, and will be highly employable graduates in the area of science.
Where it will take you
Teaching is a rewarding career allowing you to assist young people’s development and life choices, and graduates with secondary teaching qualifications in science are in demand in all Australian states and territories. On completion of this double degree, graduates will be provided with opportunities for employment in teaching, industry, government departments and authorities, and research laboratories.
Your course is recognised by industry
Registration with the NSW Institute of Teachers is currently being sought.
During the four years of full-time study, students engage in a range of teaching experiences. These are integrated into each year of the course and culminate in the fourth year with the extended practicum.
The extended practicum is a 10 week internship where the student assumes a full teaching load.
