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’m doing a Master’s in Education with Hibernia and I am working in a primary school it is actually the primary school I attended myself as a classroom assistant with junior and senior infants and in the evening I work in 2nd class.
Why did you chose WIT?
I always had an interest in English and I am fluent in Irish 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 holds a lot of personal significance to me as a person, 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 on to and a vary of job sectors too.
