Our Foundation in Business, Management and Study Skills is designed to provide students with broader knowledge of effective management skills. It will prepare international students with the English language and study skills to progress to year one of the following degrees at Saint Patrick’s Pontifical University, Maynooth, with the business and management modules critical in the application of any technical degree in today’s global world.
Jointly awarded by St Patrick’s Pontifical University & Maynooth University. This is a three year degree, leading to a Double Major (equal study of two subjects) award. This programme is designed for those who wish to combine the study of Theology with the study of Arts. Students take Theology in the Faculty of Theology in St Patrick’s Pontifical University: for the Arts component you follow the regular BA courses of the Faculties at Maynooth University.
This course aims to provide students with a solid intellectual formation in Theology. The scope of the course is wide, covering the range of the main theological subjects, so that students are introduced both to the breadth of the Christian tradition and to the variety of questions raised for Theology at the present time. Students of the course should develop a well-informed understanding and a deep personal appropriation of the Christian faith and other world religions and beliefs. Arts These subjects offer students the opportunity both to broaden and deepen their knowledge of subjects they have already studied and to embark on new subjects of study. The variety of disciplines available is part of the richness of the Arts, but what all the subjects have in common is that each, in its own way, requires students to consider and reassess the values by which society operates in the modern world. The Theology and Arts student therefore is someone with an enquiring and broad-ranging mind who will be well equipped to take his or her place in professional, social and community life.
