Joint Honours- Business

Welcome to Joint Honours Business at the Trinity Business School.

We offer two joint honours degrees:

Develop a critical engagement with both business and law at undergraduate level.

Develop a critical engagement with both business and computer science at undergraduate level.

From a Business Perspective:
From a business perspective we provide critical engagement with the various business disciplines spanning the main areas of interest within business which progress in intensity and depth over the four years of study.

The module choices will challenge students to explore and investigate business and management activities, concepts and theories.

Further information

Our two joint honours programmes allow students to specialise within two disciplines and choose a pathway that best suits them best.

Students can choose pathways which focus on their interests and thus create their own degree:

  • Computer Science and Business: Two pathways – joint honours or major/minor with the discipline of your choice.
  • Law and Business - Three pathways - joint honours, major/minor with the discipline of your choice or single honours.

Within the above pathway options each student chooses their own pathway. For more information, please consult Academic Registry

What Business Modules Will I Study?

The Joint Honours degree are four-year programmes where we provide critical engagement with the various business disciplines spanning which progress over the four years of study. In order to obtain an adequate grounding in each discipline, students will be required to complete certain mandatory modules, largely taught in the Fresher (first two) years. The Sophister (third and fourth) years will allow students to choose from two/three streams depending on their interests. There is a minimum and maximum requirement in each discipline depending on the chosen pathway.

Self-directed learning: Most modules involve a combination of continuous assessment, essays, projects, presentations, open and closed book examinations focus on self-directed and experiential learning. There is some potential for a study abroad option in the third year of both programmes.

Trinity Electives: Student will also engage with Trinity Electives which are modules outside their core disciplines which provide students with the students to develop and explore further afield.

Elective Modules 

Is this programme for me? The Joint Honours degrees are of four years duration, which will prepare students for challenging careers in either (or both) business and the other discipline. They also position students very well for postgraduate study in the discipline of their choice and also PhD or further research if that is their desire.
