BA (Children's Studies)
"I found studying the Bachelor of Arts (Children's Studies) at NUI Galway extremely interesting. I did not know what to expect when I applied for the course, but I was pleasantly surprised when I began to study. The topics are highly interesting and very relevant. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in children or working with them in the future."
