Arts & Social Science
You may have an interest in English, French, History or Sociology and Political Science, or you may have always wanted to pursue a diploma or a degree for career or personal development reasons. NUI Galway’s Adult & Continuing Education Office offers Arts and Social Science programmes which will introduce you to the study of languages, literature and philosophy. We work to develop your confidence in developing innovative and creative forms of thought, in assessing evidence and probabilities and in making informed, critical judgments. Our diploma programmes are usually two years in duration, where you will specialize in one particular subject area, while the degree programme offers you an exciting combination of subject areas to choose from over a four-year cycle. The Bachelor of Arts programme provides you with a flexible study route, with exit awards at certificate (one year), diploma (two years) and degree level (four years).
