    Hi I'm just wondering is there a part time heritage studies course? I think I would prefer the more geography based course. Thanks.

    Language definitely.

    Language is way more useful though it can be hard work.

    Yep, this.

    I did Irish up to second year. I love Irish, I'm pretty good at it, but 3rd and 4th years were really tough according to the people that stayed on.

    Plus, I genuinely wanted to do the business modules - event management in 3rd year (i only did it the first sem, coz there was a really good heritage elective the second sem), then entrepreneurship, and innovation & creativity in 4 year.

    Well it appears I am definatly going to do Heritage studies in Sept, so thanks for the info everyone!

    Hi just wondering if you did Heritage studies and if you liked it. What kind of employment did it lead to. Anything you can tell me would be very welcome. Thanks. Jack

  • Not sure how recent this is, but it appears Heritage studies which is now called History & Geography and another similar program called Culture and Environment are available at the Castlebar campus.

    Just posting it here in case there is anybody lurking who is interested.
