Social science is the study of how human societies are organised. It involves the analysis of the social forces that govern the world we live in and their impact on individuals, families, communities and countries. It's also the study of how class, gender, religion, and race affects groups of people and of the roles played by large institutions like political or education systems. This programme emphasises the study of applied social science through the subject Social Policy. This subject is concerned with government and institutional policies in relation to human welfare. As a student, you will get to grips with contemporary issues in society, especially Irish society, learning to explore practical problems using conceptual and analytical tools. You will be encouraged to rigorously and systematically scrutinise commonsense and partisan views of society, developing your skills of enquiry, research, and communication.

Applicants are required to have a minimum of six subjects in the Irish Leaving Certificate with two Higher Level papers at C3 and four Ordinary or Higher Level papers at grade D3
