What are your interests?



The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

LM002 Bachelor of Arts - Create Your Own Degree

Posted on January 18, 2019
Why study a Bachelor of Arts at UL?

At the University of Limerick, we deliver an Arts Degree which is flexible and wide-ranging, offering 19 subjects in all, with a possible 176 combinations.

You can study a combination of subjects — as Single Honours or Joint Honours — from across the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences: from familiar arts subjects such as English, French, German, or History, to newer subjects such as Linguistics with TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

In first year you will study 4 subjects, chosen by the student, and then from second year onwards pick 2 subject (joint honours), or one subject (single honours), to study for the
remainder of your degree. In the course of your study you will have opportunities — unique to the
UL curriculum — to work, to travel, and to study abroad.

You will study Arts at UL because:

• You want to choose from a wide range of subjects at an institution where you can benefit from
real-world work experience and can live and study in another country
• You wish to communicate your own ideas effectively and persuasively
• You want to engage critically and analytically with the world around you
• You want to develop skills that will enhance your career and, in the broadest sense, your
contribution to society
