Course Overview

This is a highly flexible programme, offering you a wide range of two-subject combinations to degree level. In addition to academic rigour, you will acquire transferable skills designed to make you career-ready and equipped for employment and further study in Ireland or abroad. Over the course of your three-year degree, you will be able to pursue and develop your interests across a broad range of subjects. The Joint-Honours BA will help you become a disciplined and creative thinker, capable of expressing your thoughts coherently and persuasively.

You will study three subjects in First Arts. You continue to study two of the subjects that you pass in first year to degree level - in Second and Final Arts.

BA (International)

The BA (International) is a four-year version of the BA (Joint-Honours), BA (Public and Social Policy) and BA (Psychology) programmes. Applications are made in Second Arts and students spend their third year studying in a third-level institution abroad or on an approved placement overseas. Studying a modern language to degree level involves spending a period, normally an academic year, abroad in a country or region where the language is widely spoken. You will pursue both of your degree subjects during the period abroad. Students registered for two languages are required to spend a minimum of twelve weeks in each of the countries/regions where the relevant languages are spoken. This will usually consist of an academic year abroad arranged by the University in one language and a summer placement arranged by the student in the other relevant country/region. Non-language students may also take a BA International by spending a year abroad in the US or on European exchanges where programmes are available through English.

Credits
You must earn a defined number of credits (aka ECTS) to complete each year of your course. You do this by taking all of its required modules as well as the correct number of optional modules to obtain that year's total number of credits.
Module
An examinable portion of a subject or course, for which you attend lectures and/or tutorials and carry out assignments. E.g. Algebra and Calculus could be modules within the subject Mathematics.
Subject
Some courses allow you to choose subjects, where related modules are grouped together. Subjects have their own required number of credits, so you must take all that subject's required modules and may also need to obtain the remainder of the subject's total credits by choosing from its available optional modules.
Optional
A module you may choose to study.
Required
A module that you must study if you choose this course (or subject).
Required Core Subject
A subject you must study because it's integral to that course.
Semester
Most courses have 2 semesters (aka terms) per year, so a three-year course will have six semesters in total. For clarity, this page will refer to the first semester of year 2 as 'Semester 3'.

Hannah Healey |   Current Student

I chose to study Arts because it gives you a wide variety of subjects to choose from, so it seemed the best option for me. I hope to do a postgrad in Public Relations once I'm finished.
