The Kilkenny Campus of Maynooth University was established in 1997 to provide undergraduate and postgraduate courses for adult students from Kilkenny and the south east. In 2013 the Kilkenny First Arts programme was introduced which gives students the option to take year one of their BA degree on the Kilkenny Campus before moving to main campus in Maynooth in year two.
The campus is centrally located just off the ring road in Kilkenny with easy access from the M9 motorway. Our students come from all over the county including Carlow, Kildare, Laois, Tipperary, Waterford, Wexford and Donegal.
Arts in Kilkenny
At Kilkenny Campus you can choose from a selection of Arts subjects taken from the full range available on the main campus in Maynooth (as part of MH101). The subjects on offer range from centuries-old disciplines to more modern areas of thought because, as an Arts student, you can choose to study how people live, how they think, how they behave, how they interact with each other socially or economically, and you can also analyse cultural, literary, historical or political development.
