Mary-Kate Coleman discusses how she loved the flexibility of subject choices and future career opportunities the Bachelor of Arts (Hons) offered her
What are you currently doing?
I am currently doing a Professional Masters in Primary Education with Hibernia College. I work in a gaelscoil helping out with the infant classes and I am also doing some subbing. I am enjoying the masters and I can't wait to be a qualified primary school teacher.
Why did you chose WIT?
I've always loved English literacy and I am a gaelgóir as I attended a gaelscoil myself, so after doing some research on the arts courses offered I had my mind made up, off I went and here I am today. A big factor was the closeness to home and the flexibility in the course.
What stands out about your experience at WIT?
My experience at WIT was a great one, I think the lecturers and their involvement with my college career was very special. You’re not just a student number, you’re a name, a face, a friend and to them an important student. I also think that I can say on a universal note it’s a great community to be a part of.
What advice would you give to someone considering Arts in WIT?
I think if you are considering doing a BA in Arts in WIT it’s a great course to do because the subject choices are completely flexible and open to you.It is also flexible in the sense that it leaves you with a lot of options for post-graduate courses to continue your studies with, and a variety of career choices
