Special Education

There are many different forms of disabilities and special needs that require the expert knowledge and skills of a Special Education teacher. Our Special Education degrees at USQ will give you the knowledge and practical skills to work in this rewarding and challenging environment.

  • Our program will help you to identify the special needs of a student, and create a detailed and individualised education program to suit their requirements.
  • Gain skills in providing a supportive and inclusive classroom environment where you can help students to develop positive communication and social skills, build resilience, and help them to achieve their learning milestones.
  • We will support you in applying the specialist skills and knowledge you will learn in this degree, in a practical hands on learning environment.

If you are already an experienced teacher, you can extend your knowledge and skills with a postgraduate USQ Education degree and specialise in Special Education.

Queensland College of Teachers compiled a report called Why choose teaching? A Matter of Choice: Evidence from the Field to help you understand why and for who teaching may be suited.

Career opportunities

Work is normally found in either primary or secondary public or private schools. Alternatively, you might gain employment in higher education settings, training related fields, human services or community-based government organisations.
