University College Dublin An Coláiste Ollscoile Baile Átha Cliath National University of Ireland, Dublin Ollscoil na héireann, Baile Átha Cliath BA Degree Programme (Undergraduate Courses) Session 2004/05 University College Dublin Information For Exchange Students Re Units And Credits Throughout this booklet, undergraduate Arts courses, except in First Year, are given or deemed to have a unit value. A one-unit course consists of one lecture/tutorial per week for a twelve-week period or represents an equivalent proportion of the year's work. Courses of two or three units are pro rata. Normally a student would take courses to the value of twenty-four units in a full year. In addition, University College Dublin has adopted a system of credits, awarded for work successfully completed. In line with the European Course Credit Transfer System (ECTS), a full year's work successfully completed will be allotted 60 credits. Exchange students and others involved in ECTS transfer of courses should note that to determine the number of credits which will be allotted to a successfully completed day Arts course, the Arts Faculty unit value should be multiplied by 2.5. Thus: a one-unit course, successfully completed, will be awarded 2.5 credits; a two-unit course, successfully completed, will be awarded 5 credits; a three-unit course, successfully completed, will be awarded 7.5 credits; and twenty-four units, successfully completed, will be awarded 60 credits. N.B. Enquiries on the award of credits should be addressed to the Registrar, University College Dublin, Belfield, Dublin 4. 2 BA Degree Programme (Undergraduate Courses) Contents Information For Exchange Students Re Units And Credits...2 Degrees in the Faculties of Arts, Celtic Studies and Human Sciences...5 Guide To Timetable...6 Degree of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Day Courses... 8 First Arts Day Courses Mode I: BA (Honours) Single Subject Mode II: BA (Honours) Two Subjects Mode IIA: BA (Honours) Two Associated Subjects Mode III: BA (Honours) Related Subjects BA (Honours) (International) Programme BA (Honours) Computer Science Syllabus of Courses Arabic Aramaic (Minor Subject in Mode III Near Eastern Languages) Archaeology Celtic Civilization Classical Studies Classics Computer Science Economics English Old and Middle English Experimental Physics French Gaeilge An Nua-Ghaeilge Gaeilge na halban Cúrsa an Léinn Cheiltigh Geography German Greek Greek and Roman Civilization Hebrew Hellenistic Greek History History of Art University College Dublin Information Studies...82 Early (Including Medieval) Irish...88 Irish Folklore...89 Italian...90 Latin...92 Linguistics...95 Logic...98 Mathematical Studies...98 Mathematics Mathematical Physics Studies Music Philosophy Politics Psychology Sociology Spanish Portuguese Statistics Welsh Subject Index BA Degree Programme (Undergraduate Courses) Degrees in the Faculties of Arts, Celtic Studies and Human Sciences Extract from the Statute of the University The University may grant the following Degrees to students who, under conditions laid down in the statutes and regulations, have completed approved courses of study, and have passed the prescribed examinations of the University, and fulfilled all other prescribed conditions: In the Faculty of Arts: Bachelor of Arts (Honours) (BA) * Bachelor of Arts (Honours) (Computer Science) Bachelor of Music (BMus) ** Master of Arts (MA) Master of Literature (MLitt) Master of Philosophy (MPhil) Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Doctor of Literature (DLitt) Doctor of Music (DMus)** In the Faculty of Human Sciences: Bachelor of Social Science (Honours) (BSocSc )** Master of Economic Science (MEconSc) Master of Education (MEd) Master of Library and Information Studies (MLIS) Master of Psychological Science (MPsychSc) Master of Social Science (MSocSc) Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Doctor of Literature (DLitt) Doctor of Economic Science (DEconSc) Doctor of Psychological Science (DPsychSc) For details of all Postgraduate Degrees, please see separate booklets In the Faculty of Celtic Studies: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Doctor of Celtic Studies (DLittCelt) * For details of the BA Modular (Evening) Degree, see separate booklet. ** For details of the BMus Degree and the BSocSc (Honours) Degree, see separate booklets Music, Social Science. 5 6 Guide To Timetable Classification of Arts Subjects* Description A B C D E F Subjects offered in all years Subject offered in First Year only Subjects offered in Second and Third Year only Subjects offered in Second and Third Year to complete full Degree subjects in Mode 1 * Arabic Linguistics Greek and Roman Civilization Economics History of Art Irish Folklore Icelandic Classical Studies Greek History Welsh Music Statistics Additional Economics Maths/Maths Studies German Spanish Early Irish Hebrew Information Studies Latin English Archaeology Politics Computer Science (for DN050 Students only) Additional Psychology Philosophy Irish Italian Sociology Aramaic Additional English French Psychology Geography Maths Physics Studies Celtic Civilization Additional History University College Dublin Students of Early Irish who wish to take Latin, will be facilitated by the Classics Department.

BA Degree Programme (Undergraduate Courses) University College Dublin Degree of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Day Courses The Faculties of Arts, Celtic Studies and Human Sciences offer day courses, normally of three years' duration, leading to the Degree of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) of the National University of Ireland. The dates of the academic terms for each year are published in the Student Information Handbook. In many Departments in the Faculties of Arts, Celtic Studies and Human Sciences, the duration of courses is expressed as a semester, i.e. a twelve-week teaching period, usually from September to January or from January to May. General Description Students reading for the BA Degree (Honours) by day take three subjects in the First Year (as explained in the section on 'First Arts Day Courses') and one, two or three subjects in the Second and Final Years (as explained in the sections on the different Degree Modes). Students who have passed the First Arts Examination proceed to the Degree of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) by one of the Degree Modes which are entered at the beginning of Second Year. Eligibility to enter a particular Degree Mode is governed both by the course to which the student has been admitted, the level of attainment in the First Arts Examination and by the subject combination selected in First Arts. In selecting First Year subjects, therefore, students should pay particular attention to the details concerning admission to the Degree Mode for which they are aiming. Students are normally permitted a maximum of two years in First Year Arts from the date of entering the course. A similar regulation applies to Second Year Arts. In exceptional circumstances an extension to the two-year rule may be considered by the Faculty of Arts: for information on application procedures please contact the Faculty of Arts Office. Course Requirements: Definition of the 'Unit' Day courses, except in First Year, are given or deemed to have a unit value: A one-unit course consists of one lecture/tutorial per week for a twelve week period, or represents an equivalent proportion of the year's work. Courses of two or three units are pro rata. In the case of some subjects where courses are not described in unitised form, the year's work is deemed equivalent to a pre-determined number of units. The number of course units which must be accumulated and examined in the subject(s) studied in the Second and Final Years is laid out in the sections describing the Degree Modes. Examination Requirements Students proceeding to the Degree of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) by day must pass the examinations listed below: (a) The First University Examination in Arts (taken at the end of the First Year) which must be passed in three permissible subjects before a student may proceed to Second Year. 8 BA Degree Programme (Undergraduate Courses) The examination is held in the Summer of each year; a repeat examination in individual subjects is held in the Autumn. The examination must be passed within two years of entering the course. For further details, see the section 'First Arts Day: Examination Requirements'. (b) The Second University Examination in Arts (Honours) (taken at the end of the Second Year) which must be passed in its entirety before a student may proceed to the Final Year. The examination is held in the Summer of each year; a repeat examination is held in the Autumn. In the case of Mathematics and Mathematical Physics, there is no Autumn repeat examination at Honours level. The examination must be passed within two years from the date of entering the Second Year course. (c) The Final University Examination for the Degree of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) (taken at the end of the Final Year). The BA Degree (Honours) Examination is held in the Summer of each year. Honours will be awarded separately in each subject. Honours may only be awarded if the whole examination is passed at one sitting in the Summer examination. Introduction of Beneficial Aggregation (i.e. where aggregation operates to the benefit of the student) Not to apply to the BA (International) Degree From 2003 the grade of Degree in a subject (when all subjects are passed at one sitting in the summer examinations of Second and Final Year) will be determined by: Either aggregation of 30% of the Second Arts Summer examination results with 70% of the Final Year Summer examination results within each subject; or 100% of the Final Year Summer examination results, whichever is to the benefit of the student. 9 University College Dublin First Arts Day Courses General Description First Year students must follow courses in, and present for examination in, three subjects.
