Here at Mary Immaculate College, we provide a supportive learning community and a springboard for you to reach your full potential with 13 outstanding undergraduate degree programmes spread across the areas of Psychology, Teaching (primary and post-primary level), Liberal Arts, Early Childhood Care and Education, and Contemporary and Applied Theatre Studies.
