Master of Education

La Trobe University

Program Overview

Become an expert in educational science and advance your career.

The educational landscape is rapidly changing. Research is advancing our understanding of how and why we learn, and digitisation continues to transform classrooms around the world. With schools and educational organisations facing new challenges, there’s a strong need for educational professionals who can leverage new opportunities and transform the way students learn.*

If you're passionate about continual learning and are ready to advance your career, La Trobe's Master of Education will provide you with the latest in educational best practice and the professional networks to move into leadership or specialist positions.

Explore the big issues in education today. Learn the latest evidence-based approaches to learning and grow your career as an educator and leader. You'll study core subjects on educational leadership, psychology and digital technologies, then dig deeper through a specialisation in inclusion and diversity, leadership and management, or language and literacy. When you choose a specialisation, you'll graduate with it on your academic transcript so future employers can recognise your expertise.

We encourage educators to experiment, innovate, adapt, and address the important challenges of our sector. Learn how to engage with curriculum reforms and design educational programs. Explore the science of language and reading, and understand how to use data to inform evidence-based practice.

Relationships are at the heart of everything we do at La Trobe. We partner with schools, communities and governments to provide our students with access to the best research, teaching and professional networks. Explore diversity in educational contexts, plan for socially just education, and immerse yourself in school, community and cultural learning environments.
