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.

The programme is open to graduates with an honours degree award of 2.2 or higher, or an equivalent academic or professional qualification in a related discipline.
In year one, you are given both a theoretical and a practical understanding of key processes of teaching and learning. You are introduced to influential traditions of practice in teaching and classroom management. You also undertake teaching practice in a school where you will develop the knowledge, teaching skills and attitudes needed for effective teaching. This is supported by college tutorials and support teaching. In an extended placement in year 2, the emphasis is on more autonomous functioning, and you will be encouraged to take up a visible and active role in the full life of the host school. A key requirement in Year 2 is an Action Research project which you will undertake, with college support.
