    Welcome to Maynooth UniversityThis guide is designed to help you get started and to explain your options.If you are MH101 Arts student, we have compiled a separate guide for your programme where we go through each of your subjects, and the different pathways you can progress with from MH101.

  • 4

    In some programmes you will have the opportunity to shape your degree to best match your interests and strengths. There is normally less choice within our special denominated programmes. Nevertheless, there will often be the opportunity to select one of our new Critical Skills courses.

    Where your degree has a choice of subjects, timetable permitting you will be able to amend some of the subjects within your programme. Changes such as these are permitted during the first four weeks of first year, so if you realise you have made a mistake, or if a subject or module is not for you, you can choose an alternative. In some of our programmes, you can also make changes in your choices at the start of the second semester.

    Critical Skills In first year, many of our programmes also give you the have the option of taking a subject in Critical Skills. This is an intensive course in the skills we expect a Maynooth graduate to develop; the ability to analyse ideas from different perspectives, develop your own position, and present your ideas clearly and convincingly. This is a first year course only. It is taught in small groups and you can expect to do regular assignments in writing and in verbal presentation, to develop your skills in these important areas. Where Critical Skills are available in your programme, we have indicated this in the programme and subject tables that follow.

    At the start of second year youll also have the opportunity to consider whether an Elective is something you would like to build in to that years programme. Electives allow students to broaden their perspective by studying across disciplines thus learning how to think differently and appreciate different viewpoints.

    Section 1 Your degree

    GlossarySemester We divide the academic year into two parts called semesters. The first semester runs from September to January, and the second semester runs from February to May.

    ProgrammeThe programme is the general term we use to describe what you study. Your programme leads to a degree, and the content will depend on the degree you are taking.

    SubjectMany programmes are divided into different subjects. In most degrees you will graduate in either one or two subjects. However you will often take more subjects in first year.

    ModuleThe subjects are made up of modules. Each module is a substantial amount of study which is assessed separately. Together, they contribute to an overall subject mark.

    CreditsThe amount of work involved in a module is indicated by its credit weight. In first year, most modules are 7.5 credits, and after first year most are either 5 or 10 credits. We use the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), in which a normal year of full time study is 60 credits. So, in first year you will typically do eight modules, four in the first semester and four in the second semester.

    Marks and StandardsThe regulations that guide university assessment are called Marks and Standards. The full Marks and Standards document, plus a guide for students on assessment regulations are available on the University Policies page at: www.maynoothuniversity.ie/university-policies/academic-policies-procedures.

    RegistrationYou must be registered for all the modules you are taking. This is really important. If you are not registered, you are not earning the credits for that module, and building towards your degree.

    You register at the start of each academic year, but in first year we allow you to make changes up to the end of the fourth week of the first semester. This is to give you the time to make sure you have made the right choices for you. But remember, subjects are taught from the first day of lectures, so the later you leave it to firm up your choices, the more of a subject you may miss. Attending subject talks during Welcome Week of any of the subjects that you might be interested in taking is crucial to getting started on the right foot.

    When you register, you will first choose your subjects, and then choose the modules you want to take within those subjects. Depending on your programme, you will often have a choice of subjects in first year. As you register you often will find that modules may be marked as

    Optionalyou may take the module as part of the subject;

    Compulsoryyou must take the module if you are taking the subject;

    Requiredyou must pass the module without compensation to continue in the subject.

    Where there is a choice of modules available in a subject in your programme, you must ensure that your credits are balanced evenly over the two semesters.

    The subject tables that follow illustrate the first year structure and options in all our first year programmes (with the exception of MH101).You can use these tables as a guide to check the possibilities in the subjects that interest you most. The left hand column contains first year subject information and options while the right hand column contains second year programme structures. This information is the latest available at time of publication, and may be subject to some changes.

    For subject specific content queries, dont forget to consult individual department websites via the Maynooth University homepage (www.maynoothuniversity.ie), to attend the subject talks during Welcome Week and to use the online Course Finder tool available via the For Current Students tab on the Maynooth University homepage. Before you start, here is a reminder of our terminology:

    Double major You take two subjects to degree level, with equal study of each.

    Major (with minor) The major takes roughly two thirds of your study after first year, and you take a second subject as a minor.

    Minor A minor involves about one third of your time, and is intended for people who are specialising in their major, but who also want some expertise in a second subject.

    Single majorYou specialise in one subject; this usually only becomes an option in fourth year for science programmes.

    Amending your registrationRemember, if there is a choice within your programme, you can make amendments to your registration during the first four weeks of the first semester.

    The Programme Advisory Office and your Departments are there to guide and advise you and if youre unsure, we strongly recommend that you consult with them before making registration amendments. Some changes you will be able to make yourself online, others will require the written permission of the department involved.

    Arts subjects available within some programmesSome programmes include the option of selecting some of our Arts subjects. Arts subjects are organised into different timetable groups. Subjects within a group are scheduled at the same times and so you may not choose more than one subject from any group (see table that follows). You can take any combination, as long as there is no timetable clash.

    NoteSubjects available as double subjects (30 credits) are marked with *. These subjects need extra class times, normally scheduled in Groups 6 or 7.

    German and Spanish offer a 30 credit first year option for beginners in the language (marked with #). You must take this 30 credit option if you are a beginner in German or Spanish. If you have studied these languages before, you must take the 15 credit option.

    Critical Skills courses can be taken in any timetable group.

    Many subjects have recommended minimum entry requirements while French, Mathematics (Pure) and Nua Ghaeilge have minimum entry requirements that students must meet in order to register for these subjects.

    There are some skills that we regard as critical for a university education and that every university graduate should have. These are also skills that are highly valued by todays employers. You will have to be able to deal with complex arguments, evaluate evidence and make balanced judgements, and communicate ideas clearly, both verbally and in writing. Because these skills are so important, both in university and beyond, we are offering a specially designed foundation course for first year students in Critical Skills.

    The first year Critical Skills courses will be on offer as a 15 credit option and you can choose to take a Critical Skills course as one of your credit-bearing courses in first year. It will involve small group sessions every week, which will give you an opportunity to develop and practice these essential skills right from the outset.

    For 201718 the course is offered in nine thematic versions and one universal version. The thematic versions develop the critical skills through the study of a specific topic. The universal Critical Skills course develops these skills through more general material, and the topics you are studying in your other subjects. The thematic Critical Skills are offered in specific timetable groups, and the universal critical skills course is available in all timetable groups. You can find out more about Critical Skills during Welcome Week and at www.maynoothuniversity.ie/criticalskills.

    Section 4 International study abroad options

  • 49

    With some programmes, there is also the option of studying abroad as part of your degree. This will extend the duration of your programme by one year. You complete two years at Maynooth, study abroad at one of our partner universities in third year and return to Maynooth to complete your programme. You dont need to decide right now if you would like to take an International option you can make your mind up in second year.

    Maynooth University has nearly 200 partner universities in 36 countries across four continents. You can choose to study in another European country through the Erasmus + programme or you can take the Study Abroad option and study at a partner university outside Europe. Our partner universities include Boston College, University of Miami, University of Toronto, University of Notre Dame (Australia), Nanyang Technological University, LMU Munich, ESC Rennes, University of Vienna, and University of Sao Paolo, to name but a few.

    Studying abroad has positive effects on students personal and educational development, and students who study abroad enjoy enhanced graduate employment prospects. Employers highly value the transferable skills gained by students during their time abroad, including international experience, adaptability, problem-solving skills, networking and communication, language skills, confidence, curiosity and openness.

    You do not need to speak a foreign language to be able to study abroad. Approximately 50% of Maynooth students studying abroad do so through the medium of English in countries where English is not the first language. Depending on which subject(s) you take on your Arts degree, some partner universities may be more suitable for you than others.

    When you study abroad at one of MUs partner universities on an exchange programme, you do not have to pay any tuition fees to your host university, though you may be required to pay a small registration or student service fee. You will continue to pay your usual registration fees to MU and you will still need to register online with MU (as normal).

    You will be invited to apply for study abroad opportunities early in second year. The International Office holds a Study Abroad fair every year in November where you can talk to Maynooth students who have studied abroad and also international students from our partner universities who are studying at Maynooth. The International Office will support you through the application process and help you on your way to your international year abroad.

    Studying abroad is enjoyable and challenging. It is a great way to enrich your educational and personal experience, expand your knowledge and intercultural awareness and increase your future employment opportunities. If you can, take this opportunity! Find more information at www.maynoothuniversity.ie/international/going-abroad-maynooth

    Section 5 Programme Advisory Office

  • 51

    The Programme Advisory Office is there to advise you on any choices you have to make related to your programme. So if you are not sure what to do, please come and talk to us.

    We will provide a briefing during Welcome Week, which may help answer some of your questions. Last year, we helped hundreds of students with questions like these:

    How do the Arts timetable groups work?

    Is it possible for me to take a particular combination of subjects?

    I hope to transfer into a Year 2 denominated programme next year; what subjects do I need to take?

    I have changed my mind about a subject; what should I do now?

    Amending your subject choiceAt the beginning of the academic year, you will have up to four weeks to change your mind about your subjects. However, we do not recommend that you leave it until week 4 to make up your mind about your subjects as you will have missed a lot of content and possibly even some course work. Please speak to a member of the Programme Advisory Team if you have any questions about changing your subjects after registration.

    At the beginning of the second semester, you will have a second opportunity to amend your subject registration. The Programme Advisor discusses all semester two subject change requests with students to ensure that you make a fully informed decision. You will receive an email before the Christmas break with information about the semester two subject change process.

    How to get in touch with the Programme Advisory OfficeWe really want to hear from students so please get in touch with any programme choice related questions you may have via

    E programme.choices@mu.ie P 01 474 7428

    In personAt the beginning of term, we operate a drop-in service for students between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday in Rowan House on the north campus of the University.

    After week 5, students can book a one-to-one appointment with the Programme Advisor via our website: www.maynoothuniversity.ie/programme-advisory-office

    Year 2 Information Days for first yearsTowards the end of your first year, the Programme Advisory Officer will brief current first year students again about your programme options and choices for second year. This will help you prepare for your transition into second year. These information sessions will provide details of our flexible pathways, Electives and other opportunities to shape your degree the way you want it. The Year 2 Information Days will be advertised in semester two.
