Understanding the Course Catalog

Athena Study Abroad’s Dublin program study schedule is listed below. To help you understand the terminology better, let’s first familiarize you with common terms used at Griffith College Dublin:

  • module – this refers to what US students call a “course” or “class”
  • course – this refers to what US students call a full degree program

As a participant in Athena’s Dublin program, you are required to successfully complete at least 4 modules (each module is typically worth 3 to 4 U.S. credits; you should consult your home institution to determine specific course equivalencies).

 

When completing your registration form, you will sign up for 8 modules (in order of preference) to ensure you are prepared with alternates if a module is cancelled or full. Please be sure to get all of your module selections approved by your home school (including alternates) to ensure ease of transfer once you return from your study abroad experience.
COURSES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE: Below you will see the Fall 2016 and Spring 2016 course offerings of Griffith College. Courses typically stay pretty similar from year to year so current students can use the below course offerings to plan their schedule. The updated course offerings will be updated as soon as we receive them from Griffith College.

 

* Modules are subject to availability and final enrollment numbers.
** Pre-Requisites: you must meet any and all prerequisite requirements for any module in which you wish to enroll.
