NIE Visual and Performing Arts Academic Group
The NIE Visual and Performing Arts Academic Group offers programmes at degree, diploma, postgraduate diploma and graduate (coursework and research) levels which aim to provide student and serving teachers with theory and methodology for designing and conducting Arts education lessons in either primary or secondary schools.
The programmes are designed to upgrade and update student and serving teachers’ Arts knowledge and experience through practical studio sessions and theoretical seminars, so they can function effectively as Arts educators. We offer courses in arts education that ensure that as a teacher and as an arts practitioner, learning the arts and learning in the arts develop intelligence, confidence and innovation. Therefore teaching the Visual Arts, Music and Drama can be an exciting way to develop young people and nurture their talent and interest.
