New Programme LM097 BSc. (Ed) in Mathematics and Computer ScienceUniversity of Limerick

This exciting new degree programme with specialism in the teaching of Mathematics and Computer Science, is designed to produce graduates with the skills necessary to teach mathematics to Junior and Senior Cycle students in the Irish education system and also to teach the new Senior Cycle Computer Science Programme and Junior Cycle short course in coding. The  programme is in the process of seeking recognition from the teaching council but since our other four year teacher education programmes, that share a significant amount of content, are already approved, we do not envisage any problems with this accreditation application.
