  • Objectives
    This program is a double degree enabling students to qualify as professional physicists or teachers with specialisation in secondary education. It provides students with the opportunity to develop as professional teachers through a comprehensive tertiary program and extensive practical experience in schools and the community. This program enables pre-service teachers to prepare themselves to teach a range of secondary school subjects including: * Physics to year 12; * Multi-strand Science to year 12; * Science to year 10; * Mathematics to year 12. Subject areas are offered depending on availability of discipline studies in that area and education staff to teach the curriculum area.
  • Practical experience
    100 days of embedded professional practice with a practising teacher
  • Entry requirements

  • Course description

    About Applied Physics/Learning Management

    The Bachelor of Applied Physics/Bachelor of Learning Management (Secondary) program is dedicated to the graduation of industry-ready and futures oriented educators. Students are supported by industry-experienced educators – trained to mentor students.

    Students explore personal development through self-understanding and expression, as well as the theoretical foundations of education.  Academic development and the practical application of teaching skills are also a focal point in learning management programs.

    The Bachelor of Applied Physics/Bachelor of Learning Management (Secondary) program was designed for those who want to combine their passion for physics with an education degree, so that they may become fully qualified physics, science and mathematics teachers in a secondary school.

    Note: It is now a requirement of the Commission for Children and Young People that all university students and other volunteers in schools undergo a criminal history check. Therefore it will be necessary for all commencing students to apply for a ‘Suitability Blue Card’ through a nominated person at each campus. The ‘Suitability Blue Card’ remains current for two years.

    Career Opportunities

    Graduates with a double degree have access to other career possibilities outside their primary discipline and are highly attractive to potential employers.  The Bachelor of Applied Physics/Bachelor of Learning Management (Secondary) program is for those who aim to pursue a career as a high school teacher with a specialisation in physics, science and mathematical areas.  Graduates also have the same opportunities for pursuing careers in physics as those completing the Bachelor of Applied Physics degree (see CA02).

    Graduates are qualified to teach in high schools from Year 8 to 12. Graduates are eligible to apply for teaching positions with employers including Education Queensland, Catholic Education and independent schools.
