University Sunshine Coast

The first of its kind in Australia, the University of the Sunshine Coast's Master of Education (Montessori Education Specialisation) program builds your knowledge and understanding of Montessori Education practices and principles for teaching children aged 6-12. In this program, you will learn from fully trained and qualified Montessori educators, connect theory and practice, and study with a cohort of likeminded peers to enhance your teaching practice.

This specialist master’s program has been carefully designed to embed the requirements of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) 6-12 Diploma. Graduates of the Master of Education (Montessori Education Specialisation) will also be awarded the internationally recognised AMI Diploma 6-12 (subject to successful completion of all course requirements).

The Master of Education (Montessori Education Specialisation) is offered as a single enrolment intake commencing Semester 2, 2021. Enrolments are strictly limited.
