What are your interests?



Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

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
