Overview

Teachers have a profound impact on the way future generations engage with the world. A UNSW Bachelor of Education degree will enable you to challenge yourself and inspire your future students.

This double degree is for students interested in becoming secondary-school business studies and economics teachers.

After completing this degree, you will have a professional teaching qualification as well as an economics degree from the UNSW Business School. Students will gain analytical skills with broad application in business, finance and policy. Along with the theoretical aspects of education, we place great importance on practical experience. In your final two years, you will develop skills in classroom competence and spend up to 80 days in supervised teaching in at least two secondary-school contexts.

This degree is accredited by NSW Education Standards Authority as an initial teaching qualification for both government and non-government secondary schools throughout Australia and is widely accepted as a teaching qualification internationally.
