“The course gave me the opportunity to study modules such as archaeology, folklore, Irish music and German.” - Ciara O'Toole

I initially chose Heritage Studies because of my interest in both history and geography at second level, both of which are incorporated in the course.

The course gave me the opportunity to study modules such as archaeology, folklore, Irish music and German. The course is diverse with a strong focus on Irish studies as well as tourism-based modules.

What I enjoyed most about the course was the field trips where I applied what I learned in class out in the field, in addition to bonding with my class. The lecturers are enthusiastic and so helpful.

Heritage studies has opened so many doors for me regarding a career and future employment. I loved every minute of Heritage Studies and cannot recommend the course enough.
