The Master of Teaching allowed me to get straight into teaching. UTAS offered a really flexible program, it's been great.

Coleen Cole, Master of Teaching Student
The Master of Teaching is a pre-service teaching degree that will give you the skills and knowledge to teach in a primary or secondary school setting. The degree is designed to build upon tertiary qualifications and experience, enabling students to complete a teaching qualification in as little as 2 years. This course is accredited through the Tasmanian Teachers Registration Board, and is recognised in all Australian states and territories. 

Master of Teaching students can specialise in primary or secondary teaching.

The secondary teaching specialisation requires students to choose two curriculum teaching areas, which are determined by the discipline(s) undertaken in the student's undergraduate degree.

You will be required to undertake a number of Professional Experience placements totalling 60 days. This will give you the opportunity to apply the theoretical and practical skills that you have learnt in a safe and supportive environment.

The Master of Teaching is available on-campus in Hobart and fully online- by distance. Not sure if you want to study online or on-campus? We offer flexible study options that allow you to choose how and where you study, depending on your needs.

Specialisations

  • Primary (Prep to Grade 6)
  • Secondary (Grades 7 to 12)
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Arts: (Drama, Visual Art, Music)
  • LOTE - Languages Other Than English
  • Religious Education

Students who undertake the Master of Teaching pre-service teacher education course will graduate with a professional qualification and preparation that meets national expectations and standards and makes them favoured for recruitment in systems throughout Tasmania and Australia. Through experiencing an internationalised curriculum our students will graduate with a global perspective and an enhanced capacity to teach overseas and experience the world whilst working. The program is informed by core theoretical knowledge, evidence-based practice and underpinned by a strong theory-practice nexus enacted in collaboration with appropriate employing authorities.

Course Learning Outcomes

1. Knowledge:

  • In-depth understanding of education in their specific area of study: cross-curricular if primary qualified, discipline-specific if secondary.

2. Skills:

  • Cognitive, creative, analytical, critical and practical skills consistent with advanced knowledge of their area of education.

3. Application of Knowledge and Skills:

  • The capacity to synthesise theoretical understanding and practical skills to effectively plan, present and implement complex learning and teaching practices.

4. Communication, Collaboration and Leadership

  • Advanced speaking, reading, writing, listening, interpretative and advocacy skills to equip them for leadership in their area of education.

5. Professional Learning:

  • A highly developed capacity for independent, autonomous, self-directed learning.

6. Ethical Professional Practice:

  • Advanced understanding of the values and ethical principles that underpin the broad field of education;
  • Advanced capacity to apply teacher education information literacy (TEIL) capabilities to identify, critically engage with, manage, and communicate ideas in a structured, cohesive, and ethical manner.

Professional Experience Placements

An integral part of your learning in the Master of Teaching are classroom placements - putting into active practice the theory and knowledge you have been studying throughout your degree.

As a student you will participate in a minimum of 60 days (12 weeks) of full-time Professional Experience. Placements are usually scheduled as continuous 'blocks' of time ranging from 5 to 30 days, and occur in a variety of learning environments.

Placements are designed to enable our students to become familiar with a variety of Primary and Secondary learners and learning environments. Your placements will involve active observation, participation and engagement in teaching and learning roles and activities. For Master of Teaching pre-service teachers, placements focus on subject specialisation in a Primary or Secondary context.

During your placement you will be supervised and managed by a tertiary qualified educator (your Colleague Teacher), and be assessed against Focus Areas within the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

Many of our Graduates, once registered, have gone on to secure employment with placement providers based on their performance during placements.

Overseas Exchange

The Faculty of Education has a number of exchange partnerships with Universities whose curriculum and teaching our closely aligned with our own. A full list is available on the Student Exchange – Outgoing site.

Find out more about the University's Exchange Programs.

Career outcomes

Graduates of Master of Teaching are deemed to be qualified to teach in public and private sector schools in all states and territories of Australia by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership.

Our graduates work with students from Prep to Grade 6 (Primary specialisation) or Grade 7 to 12 (Secondary Specialisation), throughout Australia and overseas.
