So I am looking for information as the CAO needs to be filled out quite soon! , My top job that I would love to do is secondary school teaching , I would like to teach Business and English and Possibly Economics BUT here's the thing...
1. I am not doing Higher Level English... Does that matter???
2. My school doesn't offer Economics as a subject as there is no demand for it...
3.Does anyone know if it is possible to study economics in college without doing it for your leaving cert? Would I find it very difficult?
I am doing Higher Level Business so that shouldn't be a problem , What courses would I do to get into Business teaching and possibly Economics ( to have as a second Subject?)
Thanks in advance :)
Hi Jamie, have a look at some arts degree courses in whichever college you're hoping to attend. I'm sure not doing economics isn't a problem although I would check out the English as i'd say it depends on the college.
Yeah, You could have a look at the B.A. in NUI Galway, I think the TC recognizes you to teach English and Economics if you major in those two subjects at the end of 3rd year
You don't require any prior study of Economics in order to do it in College.
I have great notes available if you wish
I'm not sure would the business degree lead to teaching. Perhaps it might if you can do a Hdip in it! Talk to your career guidance teacher, i'm sure she will give you the best advice
any degree leads to teaching:)
