Morling Education offers a variety of postgraduate and graduate courses for people interested in expanding their knowledge of education from a Christian worldview. Morling Education students can develop their thinking to inform their educational practice while having the flexibility that distance education provides.
The courses challenge educators and potential educators to develop and apply a biblically based approach to education. While courses predominantly target educators working or planning to work within the Christian schools sector, the courses are of benefit to Christians who teach or plan to teach in other school systems.
Morling Education offers a variety of different programs which are fully accredited. Course selection ranges from Master of Education and Master of Education (Leadership) to Master of Teaching (Secondary).
We’re pleased to invite you to meet the faculty of our Morling Education Department.
