All programmes in the Faculty of Business & Humanities provide a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical skills development facilitated through active learning approaches. This is achieved through the combination of formal lectures, tutorials, group projects, presentations, case studies, educational visits, problem-based learning, work placements, stimulation activities and the use of highly regarded speakers from the professions and industry.
The faculty is extremely proud of its students and their achievements, both academic and extracurricular. Some current students include male and female inter-county and provincial footballers, hurlers and camogie players; All-Ireland league and All-Ireland college’s rugby players. Many students have spent time working on a voluntary basis in local primary schools or with local charities.
The faculty is currently undertaking a programmatic review process. All programmes and module titles could be subject to change through the programmatic process.
