CAO CODE : DN 541 If you are interested in combining your language skills with an understanding of the literature, history and culture of the countries in which these languages are spoken, then the exciting International Languages path is for you.
This four year programme offers you the chance to develop excellent linguistic proficiency in at least two of the following languages: French, German, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese, combined with a year abroad. You can study any of these languages at an advanced (post-Leaving Cert or equivalent) level and you can also take Italian, Spanish or Portuguese from beginner level.
In addition to deepening your language skills, International Languages offers you the chance to develop your critical faculties and your intercultural awareness. A crucial part of this is the fully credited year abroad at a host university, where you will have a unique opportunity to be immersed in another culture. Almost all our teaching takes place in small groups. The close contact with our staff, and the opportunity to work in groups as well as independently, will facilitate your development as an autonomous and self-reflective learner.
