UCD Social Sciences Elective Spotlight  | Stage 1 Students

Electives offer a wonderful opportunity to sample modules from across the university. As well as your Core and Option modules, you can also study Elective modules that either deepen your knowledge in your chosen area or allow you to explore subjects outside of your area of study.

The list below is a spotlight on a sample of modules available in Spring Trimester that have capacity for Stage 1 students to choose as an elective module.  These are likely to be of interest to students studying UCD Social Sciences, Social Policy & Sociology, Economics and Psychology degrees (but suitable for all students in UCD to pursue). Follow the link to learn more about each module.
