    About the course:
    This course involves three strands:
    • Physical Education: The physical education element of the course has theoretical and practical aspects. The theoretical part involves the academic study of human movement through subjects like psychology, biomechanics (the science of movement) and sociology. The practical elements will enhance your teaching skills by engaging you in a range of competitive, aesthetic, adventure, aquatic and artistic activities.
    • Biology: In the Biology element of the degree, you’ll learn the core elements of the biology curriculum, including mammalian anatomy and physiology, cell biology, genetics, health and junior cycle physics and chemistry. These are enhanced through exposure to laboratory work, ensuring that your theoretical knowledge is put into practice. In Year Two, you’ll cover elements of the junior cycle physics and chemistry syllabi in an innovative and stimulating way. Years Three and Four allow you to specialize in sport and exercise physiology from a theoretical and practical perspective.
    • Education Studies: This part of the course integrates educational theory and practice through ‘coaching rather than teaching’. This involves group work, reflective diaries, online reporting and reflection, case studies and other problem-based learning approaches to gaining the skills, knowledge and mindset necessary to teaching in a changing environment.
    To put all of this into practice and provide you with experience, you’ll be placed in schools during Years Two, Three and Four. This allows you to explore and clarify many of the key issues you will encounter as a teacher.
