About the School

The School of Linguistics, Adult and Specialist Education is committed to equipping and empowering individuals and groups to engage in life-long, life-wide learning.

Our experts teach into undergraduate Bachelor of Education programs that are fully accredited for teacher registration. Our vision is to ensure that pre-service teachers are equipped with a broad range of skills and knowledge in specialist areas such as linguistics, special education, leadership, adult learning, organisational skills, sports, health, physical education, guidance and counselling, and creative expression. Our postgraduate students develop advanced skills and understanding in one or more of these key specialist areas and our researchers continue to make exciting new discoveries in many of these fields.

Our vision comes to life through the intentional collaborative efforts of a committed team of expert staff from a diverse range of disciplinary backgrounds.
