CIT, in partnership with Cork College of Commerce, is offering a new BA (Honours) in Montessori Education from September 2012. CIT is the first Irish third-level college outside of Dublin to offer students an opportunity to study for an honours degree in Montessori Education.
The new course has been jointly developed by staff in CIT’s School of Humanities and staff in the Childcare Department in the Cork College of Commerce. Speaking at the launch of the new Degree, Cork College of Commerce Principal Ms Helen Ryan said, “The Cork College of Commerce is committed to protecting and preserving the integrity of Montessori qualifications available to students in the Munster area by forging links with Cork Institute of Technology which can facilitate this.”
Also speaking at the launch, Dr Margaret Linehan, Head, School of Humanities, CIT, said, “We are delighted to offer students an opportunity to study for an honours degree in Montessori Education. Up to now, students from the greater Munster area wishing to pursue an honours degree in Montessori Education would have to undertake studies in Dublin or England."
Applications for the course, which has 40 places, are being accepted until Fri the 3rd of August.
