What is Bachelor of Arts (Hons) International Business and Languages (German)?

This is a conjoint programme between the Faculties of Applied Arts and Business, with 50% of the contact hours devoted to languages and 50% devoted to business subjects. The key characteristics of this degree programme are the emphasis on language acquisition, and the opportunity to spend the third year abroad studying at a partner institution. French, German or Spanish are taken either: - at post Leaving Certificate level (HC3 or higher) with a second language at beginner's level. The second language options currently on offer - subject to minimum numbers - are: French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish. Or: - at beginner's level (no second language) Those who take a language at beginner's level study it intensively (9 class contact hours per week). They also take the full range of business subjects. This will enable students to achieve the standard of language competence necessary to spend Year 3 abroad and go on to find employment in a variety of businesses using their language skills. Application is by language irrespective of level, as students are streamed on intake. The business curriculum is common to all language streams. The year spent abroad is of paramount importance. It is spent either wholly in study at a partner institution or in study combined with an approved work experience in the country of their major language.

Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.
