CAO CODE: TR149 The School of Religions and Theology opens up for undergraduate students the opportunity to wrestle with persistent religious and philosophical questions, to engage with contemporary social, political and ethical issues, and to explore the culture and history‚Äîancient, medieval, and modern‚Äîof the Middle East, Europe and Ireland. In the course of their studies with us, students gain broad experience of an impressive range of intellectual operations‚Äîhistorical, sociological, literary, linguistic, hermeneutical, philosophical, and theological. At Trinity, Philosophy may be studied under the following four degree programmes, each of which is four years in duration. One can choose to study philosophy on its own, or with another subject. On its own it is known as MMS (Mental and Moral Science). There are two divisions in studying philosophy with another subject. Phil/Pol (Philosophy and Politics) is a newly established integrated degree, while TSM (Two-Subject Moderatorship) is the traditional way of combining philosophy with some other arts subject (eg English, Psychology, History etc.). Students taking MMS take 20 course components per year in first and second year and take six courses in third year. Those doing TSM and Phil/Pol take half that number.
