Junior Sophister (JS) - third year
Junior Sophister is a particularly important year for all TSM students as it is the first of the two years that forms their degree result. The decisions about the major and minor subjects are therefore crucial, as are the choices of modules taken by the student.
All students take four subjects, the mandatory modules Approaches to Art History (A) and Making and Meaning in Irish Art II (5ECTS each), together with two options selected from the list of modules on offer (10 ECTS)
Mandatory Course Modules
The mandatory element for JS comprises two modules, one per semester, each of which is worth 5 ECTS.
- HA3020 Approaches to Art History (A) Writing the History of Art - Michaelmas Term
- HA2071 Making and Meaning in Irish Art II - Hilary Term
Students select two options from the courses on offer. Students who intend to take the Moderatorship Part I in History of Art (i.e. History of Art is their minor subject) should note that by the time they have completed the Junior Sophister year they should have selected at least one module drawn from Group C and one module from either Group A or Group B.
Students should be aware that the content or sequence of modules may be altered in the future, but at present it is intended to offer the following.
Students are assessed through coursework, tests and examinations. Full details will be provided to students at the start of their respective courses
