Bachelor of Arts (Evening) History, Politics, Sociology, Literature and Law
This programme is delivered via Blended Learning to mature students wishing to take these subjects to degree level outside of the traditional daytime mode. As a result, students will be able to take a programme that will more closely meet their educational and lifestyle choices. The programme offers the option of a diploma after two years or an honours degree after successful completion of four years.
Orientation in information technology, word processing, note-taking, study skills, and in how to use library and information resources, is provided by way of support to students.
The academic aims of the programme are to encourage evaluation of Irish society in a wider European context including historical development and perspectives, political institutions and ideology, sociological perspectives on socio-economic change and social reality. The programme will also develop critical skills in the reading of modern literature and an understanding of English literature; it will enhance research skills and the acquisition of analytical tools in the collection and analysis of qualitative information and quantitative data. On successful completion of this programme, it is expected that students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the main principles underpinning at least three of the five subjects available through the programme: Politics and International Relations; History; Law; Sociology; English Literature.
