Mary ImmaculateThe Department of Psychology at Mary Immaculate College is inviting members of the public, as well as past, present and potential future students, to a talk celebrating 10 years of Psychology being offered at the College.

The free talk titled, “Weird! Your Mind is Stranger than You Think” takes place in the Lime Tree Theatre in MIC on Wednesday 14th November at 7.30pm and is suitable for anyone with an interest in Psychology, whether they have studied it before or not. It will also be suitable for secondary school students that might be thinking of studying Psychology.

Psychology was first offered as part of the Liberal Arts degree (MI004) at MIC in 2002 and has gone from strength to strength every year since then. The Psychology degree was the first in Limerick to be recognised by the professional body of psychologists in Ireland (PSI), which means there are a range of opportunities available to students when they graduate.

Psychology can also be studied as part of the BEd in Education & Psychology Programme (MI008), which is the only programme of its kind in the country and is a gateway course for students interested in becoming Educational Psychologists. This would also be a perfect opportunity for students who are trying to decide if they would like to study the Bachelor of Education (MI005/MI006) or the BEd in Education & Psychology (MI008) to explore the component of the course that makes them different from one another.
