Magee College (Irish: Ollscoil Uladh ag Coláiste Mhig Aoidh) is a campus of the University of Ulster located in Derry, Northern Ireland. It opened in 1865 as a Presbyterian Christian arts and theological college. Today, it has no religious affiliation and provides a broad range of undergraduate and postgraduate academic degree programmes in a wide range of disciplines ranging from computer science, computer games and robotics to psychology and nursing.



Magee offers a large number of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes through the University of Ulster's six faculties: [1]

  1. Arts
  2. Art, Design & Built Environment
  3. Computing and Engineering
  4. Life and Health Sciences
  5. Social Sciences
  6. Ulster Business School

Within each faculty there are a number of schools offering programmes for their relative disciplines. The schools based on the Magee campus are:

  1. Arts - School of Creative Arts
  2. Computing and Engineering - School of Computing and Intelligent Systems
  3. Life and Health Sciences - School of Nursing, School of Psychology
  4. Social Sciences - School of Policy Studies, Graduate School of Professional Legal Education, School of Sociology and Applied Social Studies
  5. Ulster Business School - Marketing and Business

Programmes taught at Magee include business studies, drama, education, computer science, computer games, robotics, electronics, modern languages, music, nursing, psychology, and social sciences.


Research activities include several research centres.

Magee is the location for the Intelligent Systems Research Centre (ISRC) dedicated to the creation of intelligent computational systems through research in neural networks, fuzzy systems, artificial intelligence and cognitive robotics. Other research areas include ambient intelligence, wireless sensor networks, robot vision, brain computer interfacing and serious games. [2]

Magee is home to the Academy for Irish Cultural Heritages (AICH) which focuses on cultural studies related to Ireland and the Irish Diaspora. [3] and the Institute of Ulster Scots Studies, founded in 2001, which looks at the history and heritage of the Ulster-Scots. [4]

It also houses International Conflict Research (INCORE), a joint venture between the United Nations University and the University of Ulster. Established in 1993, it aims to address issues of the conflict in Northern Ireland and seek to promote conflict resolution internationally. [5]


Magee College gained its name from Martha Magee, the widow of a Presbyterian minister, who, in 1845, bequeathed £20,000 to the Presbyterian Church of Ireland to found a college for theology and the arts. [6] [7] [8] It opened in 1865 primarily as a theological college, but accepted students from all denominations to study a variety of subjects.[6] It was a college of the Royal University of Ireland from 1880 and later became associated with the Trinity College, Dublin when the Royal University was dissolved in 1909 and replaced by the National University of Ireland.[6][citation needed].

In 1953, Magee Theological College separated from the remainder of the college, eventually moving to Belfast in a 1978 merger that formed Union Theological College. [6] [7] [9] Also in 1953, Magee College broke its links with Dublin and became Magee University College. It was hoped that this university college would become Northern Ireland's second university after Queen's University of Belfast, but in the 1960s, the Stormont Parliament, made a controversial decision to pass it over in favour of a new university in Coleraine, a decision which was one of the pivotal points in the history of The Troubles.[6] Instead it was incorporated into the two-campus New University of Ulster in 1969.[6] The next fourteen years saw the college halve in size, while development focused on the main Coleraine campus.[6] In 1983, the New University merged with the Ulster Polytechnic, and Magee became the early focus of development of a new four-campus university, the University of Ulster.[6] Student and faculty numbers recovered and grew rapidly over the next ten to fifteen years, accompanied by numerous construction projects [6]

  The main building was built with Scottish freestone, and opened in 1865.
