Our courses equip students to navigate complex environments and make an impact locally and globally.
We educate the next generation of teachers by providing courses from academic foundations and initial teacher education to provide valuable professional placement experience.
Message from the Dean
Our College prepares students to be teachers, creative thinkers and innovators in a complex changing world. We bring together expertise in education, Indigenous knowledge practices, human geography, disaster preparedness and management, languages, humanities and the creative industries.
Our reputation is based on extensive partnerships with government, industry and community stakeholders to address social, cultural and economic issues in:
- sparsely populated regional areas, including Northern Australia
- developing regions, including South-East Asia - particularly China, Indonesia and Timor-Leste
- Indigenous knowledge, social, cultural and economic futures.
Our research and teaching draw on the strength of the Northern Institute and the interdisciplinary expertise of our D-Labs.
D-Labs are multidisciplinary teams within the College primarily engaged in teaching, research, networking and business development. Together, academics, research students and industry professionals examine solutions for emerging social, cultural and economic issues in challenging contexts.
