I studied in a pretty unique department, as it's the only one in Ireland. There was tremendous support from lecturers to enable cross disciplinary work and collaboration, and to allow me to develop and pursue my own research interests.

Writing skills
Critical thinking
Analytical thinking
Presentation skills
Discussion skills
Argumentation skills

It's an amazing degree, and I would never want to have studied anything else. But, like most things, it requires a lot of hard work and discipline.
