The Masters programme in Education and the Arts is offered on a part-time basis over two years. It is designed for practising teachers (both primary and secondary) who have a particular interest and aptitude in the arts and education, artists who specialise in educational practice and policy-makers or administrators in the arts or in education. The programme will have a collective arts approach i.e. it is neither an integrated arts programme nor a programme in any specific discipline. It will seek to look to the issues, practices and theories that underpin music, visual arts, dance, drama and literature in education. A range of modules will be offered in year one, examining both practice and theory. They will be offered via a summer school, an online module and weekday evening classes in Mary Immaculate College. Year two of the programme will consist primarily of research and the completion of a dissertation.
Applicants will normally hold a 2.2 Honours degree (at level 8) with a major subject/component in one of the following: Education, Visual Art, Music, Drama & Theatre Studies, Dance, Creative Writing. Applicants with a degree in other areas may be considered if they have substantial and relevant professional experience of the arts and education of more than three years duration. Other applicants with substantial and relevant experience may be considered (subject to interview and portfolio evidence).
