The Master of Applied Science (Teacher Librarianship) and the Graduate Diploma of Education (Teacher Librarianship) are targeted to meet the needs of three and four-year trained teachers who are either practicing teacher librarians without a specialist qualification, practicing teachers who wish to move into the field of teacher librarianship, or qualified teacher librarians who wish to upgrade their qualifications.

About the course
Students who hold an initial qualification in teacher librarianship should expect to gain credit for seven or eight Stage one subjects (students undertaking the Master course only).
The program is designed to encourage and permit critical appraisal of theory and practice in the field of teacher librarianship as well as improve the educator’s professional competence and enhance the capacity for self development.
These courses are recognised by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). ALIA recognition acknowledges that, whilst our graduates have specific knowledge and skills in the education sector, they are qualified to work in the full range of library and information services.
There are no residential schools for Stage two subjects. Optional residential schools are available in some Stage one subjects.
