The best bit of advice I could give anyone thinking about going into dairy farming is to go out and get experience first hand on a farm. This way you will know if you enjoy it and have a passion to do it first hand. If you do then studying agriculture in school and then onto an ag college is a great foundation to get the required knowledge you will need in the future.

Summary... header image

Economics must be combined with one other TSM subject. An honours degree is awarded in both subjects. 

In the first two years, teaching emphasises the understanding of the basic principles of economics and the acquisition of the quantitative and analytical skills necessary for more in-depth study.

The student will also receive instruction on how the modern economy works both from an Irish and a global perspective. Project work is a very important component of almost all modules within the final year.

If you are interested in current economic affairs or in understanding how public policies could lower unemployment or assist the developing world, then you will find studying economics both stimulating and rewarding.
