Overview

Depending on the subjects chosen during the course of the degree, graduates will be in a position to teach mathematics and applied mathematics to senior cycle level.

By choosing this Mathematics with Education programme from Maynooth University you will have a range of options open to you after four years. Having studied Mathematics and Education for four years you are awarded a BSc Mathematics (with Education) degree - a level 8 honours degree. You can decide to exit the programme at this stage or stay on for one more year of postgraduate study, which will result in the Level 9 Professional Master of Education degree. This extra year is required in order to meet the Teaching Council requirements to be registered as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) in two subjects.

Having completed the five years of the BSc Mathematics (with Education) degree, students have a Professional Master of Education (PME). Graduates from this programme are on an equal footing with graduates from the consecutive route (i.e. four year BSc followed by two year PME). Through this pathway you are fully qualified after five years rather than taking the six year route.
