As one of the Group of Eight Universities they have a growing national and international reputation for excellent standards of inquiry, analysis and reporting.

Master of Teaching (Middle and Secondary)

Adelaide’s Master of Teaching is a two-year program for students who have completed an undergraduate degree who wish to become secondary school teachers. Successful completion of this degree satisfies the academic requirements to apply for registration with the Teachers Registration Board of South Australia. Adelaide’s degree also caters for those entering post-secondary educational institutions and those professions that may benefit from a study of the theory and practice of education.

The Master of Teaching is equivalent to a standard two years of full-time study.

The courses taught cover issues in education such as professional practice; learning and motivation; the social context of education; student-teacher interaction; and curriculum and assessment in the Australian context. Students undertake studies in curriculum areas related to their undergraduate qualifications and teaching specializations and complete three supervised teaching blocks in South Australian schools of 70 days total. Students undertake a significant practice based research project in the second year.

All students must pass both components of the Language and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE) before they can graduate.
