QQI-FET progression to Arts & Humanities

If you want to understand and explain the worlds around you, and if you are interested in evaluating evidence, in weighing up arguments and in being creative, our Arts & Humanities degrees are designed for you. Our degrees develop deep understandings of people, societies and cultures, past and present. We challenge students to consider new perspectives and new ways of approaching problems and ideas. Our graduates are equipped with transferable skills for employment and are recognised for their achievements in business, the media, education, administration, public service and the arts.
