The Master of Education is a two-year course. It is available on a part time basis only.

The Master of Education is designed to provide a program of advanced professional development for qualified and experienced teachers and school leaders who want to undertake studies which will assist them to develop Christian perspectives and professional education practices. The Master of Education emphasises critical reflection upon the role and tasks of the Christian professional teacher, and the mission, philosophy and practices of Christian schooling, and becoming equipped to translate this reflection into practice.

The maximum time allowed for the completion of the Master of Education is eight years. Extensions beyond this time may be approved where extenuating circumstances exist.

Students who are enrolled in the Master of Education may exit with the Graduate Certificate in Christian Education, subject to the completion of course requirements.
