Welcome to the Bachelor of Education, (Hons) Sport Studies and Physical Education website. The B.Ed. (Hons) Sport Studies & Physical Education is one of three programmes in the Republic of Ireland offering a professional pathway in Physical Education, and the only programme to offer a major sequence in either coach education, health and physical activity or Comparative Studies.

The course aims to present sport as a highly significant domain in Irish culture and highlight the value it can and should have for Irish society. This degree programme is unique in that it takes both scientific and humanistic approaches to sport and provides a rich foundation for professional coaching and the teaching of sport and PE.
