Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

About Us

St Patrick’s College, Maynooth opened its doors as an educational institution in 1795 and, over the intervening two centuries, it has established for itself an impressive reputation for scholarship and learning.

Today, as a Pontifical University, the College specialises in the study of theology and philosophy and related areas. As a student, you will be a member of a friendly community at a beautiful location, dedicated to your flourishing in your chosen subjects and in university life, while sharing in the resources of Maynooth University, one of the leading young universities in Ireland and Great Britain.

The Pontifical University has close links with National University of Ireland, Maynooth. The two universities share the same campus and cooperate in a number of important academic programmes. The campus is also the seat of the National Seminary.

Today, Maynooth preserves much of its rural ambience and provides easy access to large tracts of peaceful countryside. At the same time, it is within easy reach of Dublin and is close to the high-technology industrial parks on the western edge of the city. It is home to a vibrant local community and offers students and others abundant opportunities to enjoy a busy and varied social life.

The south campus itself is beautiful with its elegant neo-gothic and Georgian architecture, while on the north campus the buildings are more modern and contemporary. The campus is also teeming with wild life; here you will find grey squirrels, rabbits and hares in abundance. On occasion, unusual birds such as hawks and kestrels have been observed. It is hard to imagine that this haven of tranquillity is so close to the capital of Ireland.
