Master of Learning Sciences and Technology
... for researchers
The Research Stream of the Master of Learning Sciences and Technology program can act as a bridge to PhD studies and is designed for students for who are hoping to pursue a career as an education or learning sciences' researcher.
By combining the coursework with a dissertation, the Research Stream provides students with hands-on experience using emerging technologies; insight into the many different research specialisations available; and essential knowledge of research methods and methodologies, including those specific to technology-supported learning.
Detailed information about the structure of the Learning Sciences and Technology postgraduate coursework programs are published on the MLS&T page in the faculty's Future Student section.
