 and must register to 10 credits of core modules within the subject chosen.

Students are also welcome to take an additional Level 1 module offered by the School, ECON 10040 Economics and Society, as option, although it is not a necessary prerequisite for progressing to stage 2.

Students must also pick two elective modules. Please note that if students wish to have the option of transferring out of the Economics Single Honours programme at the end of stage 1, and pursue instead a BA Joint Honours Degree in two subjects other than Economics, students are strongly recommended to use their elective modules to pick a second subject/stream offered in the BA and register to 10 credits of core modules in that subject. If you need further information regarding these decisions, please contact Dr. Tiziana Brancaccio (tiziana.brancaccio@ucd.ie).
