Bachelor of Arts (BA) - Full Time

Dear Student

Studying for a BA in UCD will bring you into contact with some of Ireland’s most famous scholars and most committed lecturers and tutors. It will provide you with a vast choice of study areas, from those offering a route into specific professions to those sought by employers for the depth of flexibility they promote. Above all it allows you to make new friends and develop into an independent human being who cares for others.

Studying an Arts degree in UCD gives you access to Ireland's broadest range of arts and humanities options. For students who know and love subjects such as English, History or Economics, world-class academics lead classes that will inspire and surprise.

For people wishing to explore new areas, subjects like Archaeology, Psychology or Philosophy show new ways of thinking. For all UCD graduates, in-depth subject knowledge combined with vital skills in creativity, analysis and communication open up career prospects in Ireland and overseas. 

Most of our graduates find a place in the public and private sectors across Ireland, Europe, and beyond. Not everyone can be James Joyce (BA 1902) or a famous sports personality, but BA graduates from UCD are incredibly successful in a variety of areas.
