Career Opportunities

For those interested in becoming early childhood professionals, our parttime BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Teaching and Learning allows students to work and study simultaneously. If you are interested in primary teaching, the Bachelor of Education will prepare you to work as a primary school teacher. At Maynooth you get to study at the heart of a major university, where you can enjoy intellectual stimulus and social interaction with professors and students from other disciplines; the first time this was possible in Ireland.
