The Master of Education (Higher Education) is a 72-unit program offered by the College of Education, Psychology and Social Work and is available via online delivery.
It is aimed at academics who are working in the tertiary sector or who aspire to teach at tertiary level, and those whose personal, professional or research interests include a focus on higher education. There are several strands within the specialisation which provide pathways for participants interested in a specific focus, such as teaching and learning, leadership, or research in Higher Education. Students are expected to discuss their choice of topics with the specialisation coordinator, who must approve the student’s final program of study. Consultation with the specialisation coordinator early in the program is essential for students wanting to pursue a research pathway leading to doctoral studies to ensure that all academic requirements are met.
The Higher Education specialisation will be identified on the student’s transcript of academic record and on the parchment presented to the student on completion of the course.
