The Information You Need

Theology and Arts is a very broad course which gives you the option to study many different subjects and you are not tied down to one subject.

Luka Pranciliauskas Theology & Arts student from Wicklow

​My experience in St Patrick’s Pontifical University has been amazing, small lecture sizes made meeting new people easy and it’s really easy to talk to lecturers if you have any problems or questions.

Mark Paul Behan-Clarke Arts & Theology student from Wicklow

As well as the beautiful campus, the small class sizes allow for you to get to know your lecturers and other students.

Shauna Murphy Theology & Arts student from Meath

I have found that there is a support system in place like no other, where students are treated as people rather than another number in hundreds.

Aoife Ward Arts & Theology student from Meath

I love the fact that this degree allows me to study theology within St. Patrick’s Pontifical University along with other Arts subjects within Maynooth University. It really is the best of both worlds for me.

Aoife Ryan Theology & Arts student from Westmeath

With smaller class sizes, approachable staff, friendly classmates and a beautiful campus I quickly found myself a second home here in Maynooth from Carlow.

Alex Balfe Vicic Theology & Arts student from Carlow

From day one, everyone has been so friendly, and the staff go above and beyond, particularly during the last year of remote learning which has been a new experience for us all.

Niamh Palmer Theology student from Cork

The St Patrick’s graduate is discerning and socially engaged. Their knowledge and appropriation of their theological studies empowers them to make a unique and invaluable contribution in their future careers

Colm McGoldrick Theology student from Mayo

Student Ambassadors are a vital link for incoming students, assisting with orientation activities, providing campus tours and being on hand with advice and recommendations on how best to transition from second level into life at university. Student Ambassadors also assist at university events throughout the year passing on their first-hand experiences of life at St Patrick’s.
