News & Events
The new courses will provide a learning experience with a difference; no assignments and no exams, just a great opportunity to pursue interesting topics in dialogue with university academic staff and a group of like-minded people. There are no entry requirements. All you need to participate is your enthusiasm, your life’s knowledge and experience and a willingness to join in the discussions.
Speaking about the new initiative, Josephine Finn, Head of the Department of Adult and Community Education said “we are delighted to be able to pursue this initiative and to meet the demand for short university courses in the community of Maynooth and the surrounding areas.”
This year’s theme is Human Studies with a series of three courses focusing, in turn, on the individual, society and practical politics. The three courses are complementary but each course is designed to stand alone – you can sign up for one course or you may decide to participate in all three.
Launching the programme, Derek Barter, Continuing Education Coordinator at the Department described the courses as “a chance for people to explore the humanities at university level. The classes will examine human behaviour and the social and political worlds we live in, identifying patterns and connections within them”
Courses will run on Thursday morning from in the new fully accessible Maynooth
Community Space at the entrance to Manor Mills Shopping Centre. Courses are for 8 weeks (€120) or 10 weeks (€150). The first course in Psychology will begin on
Thursday 22nd September at .
Information on the courses is available from Kay Loughlin, Department of Adult
