This pre-service teacher education program is available only as a dual degree. Students completing a dual degree have the opportunity to complete two degrees in less time than if each was studied separately. The Bachelor of Education (Secondary) offers school based learning and draws on the latest research into effective teaching, ensuring graduates are well equipped to teach. Students completing a dual degree with education are prepared for secondary school teaching, or training in business or industry. Teaching is a challenging and rewarding career, with secondary school teachers in demand worldwide. Teaching areas include accounting, Asian languages (Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian), biology, business organisation and management, chemistry, computers and information processing, drama, economics, English, English as a second language, European languages (French, German, Italian, Spanish), geography, history, mathematics, media studies, science 21, music, physics, special needs, studies in religion and study of society.
The non-education degree undertaken provides the content knowledge for two teaching areas, while the education degree provides the skills and knowledge for the teaching of the content.

Students must complete 10 days school experience and 90 days supervised practicum. Every effort is made to place students within a reasonable distance of their home base but they can be expected to travel up to 90 minutes due to public transport connections and incur costs associated with travel and possible lost income over this period. Students are generally placed at Ipswich, Brisbane, and southeast Queensland and are encouraged to explore the option of a rural placement. Financial assistance may be available to assist with travel and accommodation costs for rural placements.
