The Professional Master of Education (PME) is a two-year masters programme which leads to a professional qualification to teach Art and Design at second level. The award is accredited by the Teaching Council of Ireland. This Masters programme will enable you as an art or design graduate, to apply your art or design practice in a professional teaching context. On completion of the PME, you will have developed an integrated understanding and appreciation of the unique qualities of an art and design education. Specifically, you will have achieved the capacity to perform as an educator in a variety of settings and contexts, with particular reference to second-level teaching. The focus of the PME is on the application of your own art and design practices, insights and modes of learning to the requirements of teaching, with specific reference to the requirements of the Irish second-level education system. The PME aims to facilitate your personal, social, intellectual and practical growth, preparing you for a professional career as a teacher and fostering the necessary skills and dispositions of research, analysis, evaluation and critique to enable you to become a reflective practitioner.
