Bachelor of Arts in Culture and Environment
This qualification provides graduates with vital skills for the job market in the cultural, environmental and tourism sectors. It provides students with a detailed knowledge of our culture (including history, archaeology, folklore and literature) and environment (including geology, ecology and the natural environment). It provides them with knowledge and skill required to work in tourism enterprises. The cultural industries and the green economy are key growth sectors in Ireland and internationally.
You will learn in many different ways in the classroom, in our customised lab and through field-trips.
Our students are actively involved in the Green Campus initiative and contributed to the Mayo Campus being the first IT campus in Ireland to be awarded the Green Flag. We were also the first third level college in Ireland to be awarded the Green Flag for biodiversity.
