Joint Honours

Apply MATRICULATION EXAMINATION

Trinity Joint Honours allows students to study two arts subjects to degree level with advanced specialisation in one or both subjects depending on their course choices. The Joint Honours programme in Religion allows you to expand your vision and gain multiple perspectives on today's world.

We understand as a student you will have a unique journey from the start of your programme to the attainment of your degree. As a Trinity Joint Honours student you will not only be provided with an opportunity to study two subjects, in the second year you will also be able to choose the structure of your programme from defined options.

You may wish to study both subjects throughout the 4 years of your programme to achieve a Joint Honours award. You may choose to avail of the opportunity to shift emphasis more to one of your subjects while continuing to study the second subject and achieve a Major with Minor award or you may decide to focus your efforts entirely on one subject from the second year of the programme. Within each of these pathways you will also be provided an opportunity to undertake Open Modules and Trinity Electives, which allow you to experience teaching and learning outside of your core subjects.

You may combine the study Religion with one other subject as part of the Joint Honours (see below for the subject combinations possible).
