    About the course

    CSU’s Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) degree was developed to address the current shortage of secondary English teachers in both Victoria and New South Wales as these shortages are projected to increase over the next 10 years.

    Where it will take you

    Graduates find employment teaching English in secondary schools across Australia and overseas. As students will study subjects in a second teaching area, graduates will be able to teach in that area as well.

    Your course is recognised by industry

    The Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) degrees are both nationally accredited and registered tertiary awards and meet all the necessary requirements for employment as a secondary teacher.

    The NSW Institute of Teachers require that all students who graduate from the Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) course meet the prerequisite standard of literacy and numeracy. The assumed knowledge/entry requirement is;
    Higher School Certificate minimum Band 4 in English Advanced, Standard English or English as a Second Language or other English studies to an equivalent standard.

    Where you do not meet these entry requirements, CSU offers concurrent study in English before graduation.

    Professional experience

    The course provides opportunities to apply knowledge and skill gained from the academic components to real-life teaching situations. Students undertake placements in schools early in the course, culminating in an extended internship, which bring students into direct contact with the teaching profession and its various facets.

    Graduation requirements

    To graduate, students must satisfactorily complete 256 points (32 subjects), including an eight subject English major. Upon completion of the program, students graduate with two separate awards, the Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) and the Bachelor of Arts.

    Additional requirements

    Refer to the Additional requirements section for information on:

        * NSW Teachers Institute requirement
        * Literacy requirement
        * Criminal Record Clearance

    Further study

    Meritorious students may also apply for acceptance into the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) program.

    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. Further details are available from the Course Coordinator.
