Naturalist?

Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.

The Student - Career Interests

This course is typically suited for people with the following Career Interests. If these interests do not describe you, this course may prepare you for work you may not find satisfying.

Linguistic

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, 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.

Career Progression

Foreign language skills and intercultural competencies constitute one of the biggest skills gaps in the Irish labour market and language graduates are very sought after in a wide variety of careers. Dublin-based headquarters of Google, Facebook, Linkedin and others are seeking the advanced language and intercultural skills our graduates acquire, and there is currently an acute shortage of language specialists in the Irish secondary school system. Our graduates have exciting careers in a wide range of fields such as cultural and creative industries, translation and interpreting, journalism and the media, publishing and arts administration, diplomacy and tourism, marketing and finance, as well as second and third level teaching or the civil service. Many go on to take postgraduate courses in areas such as business or law for which a languages degree is an excellent background. The combination of a more general languages undergraduate degree with a more specialised or professional postgraduate qualification has proven to be highly attractive to employers.
