Education at Mary Immaculate College

Bachelor of Arts

The Bachelor of Arts is a four-year, full-time, honours degree (Level 8) but can be shortened to three years in the case of some international applicants. At MIC the programme is flexible and wide-ranging. Students study four different major subjects in First Year and focus on two of these in Second Year, which they will then continue to study to degree level as joint honours. You can study a combination of subjects from familiar Arts subjects such as English, French, German or History, to newer subjects such as Drama & Theatre Studies, Media & Communication Studies or Psychology. If you are pursuing the four-year programme, you will spend your third year off-campus on a work placement or studying abroad. Starting in September. Duration is 3 or 4 years

The degree programme includes four years of modules in Business Studies and Accounting. These are taken concurrently with education modules which include theoretical, pedagogical and professional studies along with a number of school placement experiences. Starting in September.
