About the course

Throughout the course you’ll cover four integrated areas:

  • Foundational and Professional Studies in Education: We offer a student-friendly, supportive, open, dynamic and practical approach to the study of Education. The diverse, exciting, engaging, and challenging study of Education and Religious Education is reflected in the modules on offer.
  • Teaching, Including School Placements: One of the most exciting and rewarding elements of the course is our hands-on approach to School Placement. Over the four years of the course, you’ll have an opportunity to gain valuable and extensive experience within a range of teaching and learning environments, including engagement in observation of practice, micro-teaching, peer-teaching, team-teaching and school-based placement (in both primary and post-primary sectors). You’ll be supported throughout your professional development by experienced School Placement tutors, school-based cooperating teachers and METIS (a custom-built web-based environment for School Placement).
  • Theology, Religious Studies and Ethics: These elements provide a strong foundation for teaching Religious Education in second level schools and meet the subject criteria required by the Teaching Council. The specific subjects include: Ethics; Philosophy; Scripture; Systematic Theology; World Religions. You’ll be encouraged to critically engage with a wide range of topics and develop the skills to work in contexts of cultural and religious diversity.
  • History: Our aim is to provide you, as a student of History, with the material and methodologies that will equip you to discover, examine, and interpret some of the major issues and questions that will inevitably arise from your studies. The course offers a broad range of modules covering topics on Irish, European and World history from the Medieval to the Modern period.
