Literature/Language Teaching Subject for BAGCED or BEd
If you enrol on a pre-service or in-service programme to become a secondary teacher of English, you will take five Linguistics courses as part of the Literature/Language component of your programme. These courses cover an introduction to how languages work in general, an overview of languages across the Pacific as well as the structure of English, principles of second language learning and teaching, and the role and status of English in the Pacific. These courses will give you a robust training for a career in English teaching, as well as working in curriculum and assessment units.
NOTE: The information on this page applies to students enrolling on a BAGCED or BEd with Literature/Language in 2022 or later. If you enrolled on this programme in 2021 or earlier, please see the Handbook & Calendar from the year in which you first enrolled on this programme. Also note that the Literature and Education parts of the programme may have changed.
