Master of Education (Coursework)


Why enrol in the Master of Education?

The Sheridan College Master of Education (MEd) program promotes the emergence of educational leaders across the independent, Catholic and public school systems. The College seeks to train leaders and emerging who exemplify professional excellence, address the needs in their school community and can incorporate Christian perspectives into their personal and professional lives. Instruction takes place in a supportive environment that fosters intellectual inquiry, equips for professional practice and encourages servant leadership.

The units on offer in the Master of Education are grouped into three thematic streams: Educational Studies, Educational Research and Educational Leadership and Management. The College anticipates that the MEd program will be a catalyst for building capacity within each teacher's school, stimulating new research that will lead to school improvement, and cultivating a "learning community" for both students and staff. Teachers are encouraged to consult with their Principal to ensure that their research projects align with the strategic plans of their school, supporting focused plans for student learning and school improvement that will minimise disruption and maximise the benefit to the learning community.
