A major expansion in the number of places open to Arts students who wish to graduate in psychology at NUI Maynooth has been announced this week.
In response to the popularity of psychology with prospective students and the huge demand for places, the university, in a major review, has decided to substantially increase the number of places on offer.
From September 2005, all first-year Arts students will have the option of taking psychology as part of their studies. In addition, double the number, from 15 to 30, will be allowed, from their second-year on, to specialise in psychology for the remainder of their degree.
The number of places in the denominated psychology degree and the Psychology Through Science degree will remain the same.
“This is a major development for the university,” John McGinnity, Admissions Officer, NUI Maynooth, said. “Psychology has always been an area of huge demand and we have built up a national and international reputation for the course and its graduates.
“There is a wide range of careers on offer to psychologists, in areas such as clinical practice and in the education and health spheres. It’s an attractive career option with very good job opportunities forecast for the coming years.”
