Your Career with an Arts Degree
The Bachelor of Arts degree is NUI Galway’s most popular undergraduate programme, and the
second largest degree programme in the country. There is a good reason for this popularity as
Arts graduates are amongst the most employable graduates in the world because of their
versatility and ability to think critically and independently.
The current uncertainty in the employment market means that there has never been a better
time to consider studying Arts. An Arts degree will provide you with a unique combination of
intellectual skills, knowledge and interpersonal competence that will make you highly adaptable
in a constantly changing workforce.
Arts graduates are not locked into one set of skills that may become redundant in the future;
they are flexible, multi-skilled critical thinkers who are well prepared to meet the challenges of
the modern jobs market. The Arts degree is the perfect foundation for a wide range of interesting
and rewarding careers. The Career Development Centre has more information and advice on career options.
