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 (with dedicated Stage 1 elective spaces available)  that may be of interest to students studying UCD Social Sciences, Social Policy & Sociology, Economics and Psychology degrees. These modules are suitable for students who wish to take a module from outside of their chosen area. Follow the link to learn more about each module.
