Maynooth University houses the only Department of Anthropology in the Republic of Ireland.

Anthropologists study people and what they do, wherever in the world that may take us. Our staff bring the world into the classroom and teach students to understand local problems in a global, cross-cultural context.

Is in OÉ Má Nuad atá an t-aon Roinn Antraipeolaíochta i bPoblacht na hÉireann.

Déanann antraipeolaithe staidéar ar dhaoine agus ar an méid a dhéanann siad, ar fud na cruinne. Tugann ár mbaill foirne an domhan mór isteach sa seomra ranga agus múineann do na mic léinn conas fadhbanna áitiúla a thuiscint i gcomhthéacs traschultúir agus i gcomhthéacs domhanda.

CAO: MH404 Business and Global Cultures

We are launching a new portfolio of Business and Global Cultures degrees at Maynooth University as part of a unique collaboration between the School of Business and the Department of Anthropology in Ireland! 

You can choose to study either Business Management, International Business, or Marketing alongside Global Cultures. This is a Bachelor of Business Studies degree that runs for three years, but if you choose to do an additional 'Study Abroad' or 'Paid Work Placement' year you can convert this to a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. 

Hear from our student Philip Walsh about his experiences of his 1st year of studies on the Global Cultures degree.
