Master of Education (MED1)

The Master of Education at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) in Queensland, Australia gives educators/trainers the opportunity to enhance their professional competence through advanced coursework and research-based projects.

Educators at all levels have important roles to play in developing the capacity of citizens to work effectively with knowledge. New approaches to education, emphasising knowledge building rather than transmission can contribute to preparing citizens to participate more fully in the 'knowledge economy' and 'information society'.
