COURSE CODE: GY101 A BA is a broad degree, offering a wide variety of subjects to choose from. It will provide you with a solid foundation on which to apply for jobs or postgraduate study in Ireland or abroad. Four subjects are taken in First Arts from the 21 subjects on offer. Students have a minimum period of two weeks subsequent to registration to complete their subject selection. Students are assigned an Academic Adviser for the duration of their academic programme whowill help with their subject choice and academic questions. While it is useful to have narrowed down the list of subjects prior to registration, it is not necessary to have finalised subject choice at that time. In Second Arts, two of the subjects chosen at First Arts are pursued and these two subjects are completed in Final Arts. An advantage of the wide choice available, and of having to take four subjects, is the opportunity to take new subjects and to make interesting combinations of familiar and new subjects.
