If you are considering a career in teaching and have a strong interest in science, this may be the course for you. This four-year programme attracts students who have excellent communication skills, and are strongly motivated and passionate about science teaching.

Why Study Bachelor of Science with concurrent Teacher Education (Biology and Chemistry OR Physics OR Agricultural Science) at UL?

UL's School of Education is the largest post-primary teacher education provider in the state and is ranked in the top 100 universities in the world for Education programmes. University of Limerick is also ranked within the top 75 universities in Europe for excellence in teaching and learning.

The aim of the programme is to educate young teachers and help them develop the skills and aptitudes to confidently face the challenges of science teaching. When you graduate from the programme you will be qualified to teach;

Biology to honours Leaving Certificate level
Chemistry or Physics or Agricultural Science to honours Leaving Certificate level
General Science to Junior Certificate level

The programme is four years in duration and is based on the concurrent model of teacher education, in which educational studies and studies in biology, along with your chosen elective (chemistry or physics or agricultural science) are combined with periods of school placement in which you will gain experience of teaching.

The first two years of study provide a foundation in:

Chemistry
Physics
Biology
Mathematics
Education

You will study education theory and practice which will equip you with teaching aptitudes and skills on which you will build a sound philosophy and approach to teaching.

During the spring semester of year two, you will undertake the first of your two teaching practice placements for six weeks in a second level school. Your second placement will be in semester 1 of the final year, for 12 weeks. During these placements, you will teach junior or senior science topics to second level pupils, and you will be supervised by UL academic staff.

After Year 1, you will specialize in the more advanced study of biology, and either chemistry OR physics OR agricultural science. Throughout the four years, there is a strong emphasis on acquiring practical scientific skills through laboratory work, field work and assignments. In your final year, you will select a research topic. This will develop your skills in analysis, problem-solving and scientific writing.

The science pedagogics modules in your degree have been designed in close collaboration with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (who designed the new specifications) and the Junior Cycle for Teachers (who are tasked with associated professional development for teachers). In addition, the course director was a member of the development group that designed the junior cycle specification. This ensures that graduates are thoroughly prepared for the totality of science education in Irish schools which is well aligned with international best-practice.

Offered jointly by the Faculty of Education and Health Sciences, and the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
