Choose an undergraduate degree

Your journey to studying education begins with an undergraduate degree in any discipline. Watch a course overview, learn more about each of your options and discover the benefits of a Melbourne degree

The Melbourne curriculum

Your Melbourne experience is yours to shape. If you’re interested in education, you can start with any of our undergraduate (bachelors) degrees. This is an opportunity to explore your interests by studying a variety of topics. This enhances your university experience and career options giving you professional expertise across a range of disciplines. As an introduction to education, you can study education subjects in your undergraduate degree through our unique breadth program.

Once you’ve completed your undergraduate degree, you’ll progress to specialised graduate study in education.

Study education during your undergraduate degree

Study education from day one at Melbourne with breadth. Unique to the Melbourne curriculum, breadth study allows you to tailor your course to fit your individual passions and career ambitions. You may choose to take a single subject in education; or take a sequence of three or more subjects called a breadth track. This can help you develop knowledge and skills relevant to topics like deafness and communication or arts practice and engagement.

Explore breadth in education

Whilst studying for her Bachelor of Arts with the University of Melbourne, Isabella undertook some Breadth subjects in Education which confirmed her suspicion that teaching should be her chosen career path.

Pursuing her goal to become a school principal, Isabella is now enrolled with MGSE's Master of Teaching (Secondary).

She shares, “As part of my undergraduate studies I completed a Breadth subject in Education. It was a fantastic subject so I knew that a whole course from MGSE would also be fantastic if that subject was anything to go by! The teachers were really supportive, and the class always had a great atmosphere.”

I believe career options are limitless in the field of education and teaching. Therefore, in the future, I see myself working with young people around the world in a range of different settings and circumstances. I wish to become a teacher who is capable of supporting students’ needs while teaching, challenging and inspiring them to be the people they wish to be.

Meet the Faces of MGSE

When it comes to choosing graduate study, we think it's important to really understand the journey you're about to start. Whether you’re interested in a Master of Teaching, or one of our Education courses, get inspired by MGSE stories shared by alumni and current students, as well as insights into the lives of our academics.

Better than a double degree

Become a professionally accredited teacher by completing an undergraduate degree in arts, design or science followed by the Master of Teaching. Secure your place in both degrees with a Graduate Degree Package. You’ll graduate with a higher level of qualification than a traditional double degree.

Apply for a Graduate Degree Package through VTAC.
