Department of Arts Education & Physical Education
About the Department
The Department of Arts Education and Physical Education was formed in September 2007 as a result of restructuring within the new Faculty of Education.
It emerged from the amalgamation of four pre-existing teams; Drama Education, Music Education, Physical Education and Visual Art Education. Whilst the four specialist teams still remain in place, they now exist within a departmental environment which is geared to the special needs required in teaching and researching creative, imaginative and active subject areas.
The arts and physical education have a long and valued tradition within Mary Immaculate College, both as academic pursuits within programmes of initial teacher education and as student activities outside of College programmes.
The new department aims to build on that strong tradition, and to forge new and innovative ways of developing its work in initial teacher education, as well as striving for excellence in research, and providing a valuable service to the wider community.
