There are modules to suit everyone’s tastes and interests from exploring the evolution of the Irish countryside through looking at the physical landscape to understanding and exploring society and culture in the past through archaeology, art and architecture.

They are willing to engage in a process that critically analyses the taken for granted assumptions of everyday life in order to bring about a more equal and just society not only in their local community or on a national scale but to think and act to this end globally.
