Making your CAO choices can be difficult particularly when you consider the number and range of programmes on offer. However, if you’re looking for career focussed degrees, a vibrant student scene, both on and off campus, along with a supportive learning environment look no further than Mary Immaculate College (MIC).
According to Dr Geraldine Brosnan, Director of Student Life at MIC; “MIC prides itself on our high quality student experience on both our MIC Limerick and MIC Thurles campuses. The College’s support services are extensive and of very high quality. Part of our mission and vision is to create a community of scholars where staff and students work together and students are supported personally as they learn, grow, and change through their time at third-level.”
MIC’s programmes include a Bachelor of Arts programme that has been running for over 25 years and offers students the chance to choose from 13 subjects. The innovative BA in Contemporary and Applied Theatre Studies offers a mix of academic and practical learning with students having access to the beautiful 500-seater Lime Tree Theatre situated on the MIC Limerick campus. MIC’s BA in Early Childhood Care and Education is an exciting and challenging programme for those interested in working with young children. The College also offers a range of programmes in primary and post-primary school teaching. Two new programmes were added to the MIC offering in 2020, namely the Bachelor of Education – International (MI004) at MIC Limerick and the Bachelor in Education, Mathematics and Business Studies (MI014) at MIC Thurles.
