Delving into the Department of Arts, the podcast gives students an insight into different aspects of the various courses and what they entail
The Curiosity Box podcast is hosted by Dr Jenny O’Connor, lecturer on the Bachelor of Arts (Hons) course.

O'Connor is joined by fellow professionals in each episode as they tackle a varied list of topics that students want a deeper insight in to.
Delving into Frequently Asked Questions that prospective students tend to have when they’re deciding whether the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) course, and WIT, is right for them. O'Connor is joined by the Head of Department of Arts, Dr Seamus Dillon, and Erin McNamara-Cullen, the course leader for the BA Arts programme to discuss just that.
Creativity is also a topic focused on by the podcast as it’s vital to many of the programmes in the Department of Arts at WIT but what is it, and how is it nurtured?
O'Connor talks to three lecturers on creative programmes in the Department of Arts: Dr Hazel Farrell, the Programme Leader for the BA Hons in Music, Ross Lee, Lecturer on the BA (Hons) in Design (Visual Communication) and Dr Susan Connolly, Lecturer on the BA (Hons) in Visual Art.
