Course Summary

The Bachelor of Arts in English and History programme offers you the attractive opportunity to obtain a DCU undergraduate degree through online learning, which is more open and flexible than if you registered for a full-time, or part-time, campus-based programme.

The English and History subject areas are each presented as a suite of six modules which cover different aspects of that subject, for example Land, Politics & Society in Independent Ireland in History or The Renaissance in Literature.

This is not a CAO entry course - course fees required - apply directly to the college.
