Students on the Early Childhood Education and Care degree courses to benefit from new partnership.
It is proposed that the Early Childhood Education and Care students will have an opportunity to study a semester in Ontario in the second year of their course while students from Niagara College will also be able to study in GMIT Mayo in the third and/or fourth year of the L7 (Ordinary) and L8 (Honours) courses respectively.
For further information on the BA in Early Childhood Education and Care in GMIT Mayo (L8), see:
Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Geography and Outdoor Education. This course combines the study of the Environment, Landscape and Adventure. Outdoor Education and adventure activities are reliant on the natural environment for its location as a classroom and for inspiration.
Graduates will be empowered to promote careful use and management of an increasingly threatened natural world and to educate others in wise use and sustainable practise. Graduates will be well placed to manage the different and sometimes conflicting interests between rural land uses such as farming, tourism, outdoor recreation, nature conservation, forestry and alternative energy solutions.
Graduates will also have the skills to deliver and facilitate adventure activities programmes and interpret the ecology and landscape history of the countryside for their clients and students.
You will work towards National Governing Body (NGB) qualifications in a range of adventure sports while building experience in implementing educational and adventure tourism programmes. Mayo’s mountain’s and wild Atlantic coast provide an ideal location for this programme of study.
