Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Summary... header image

The BA World Languages is a four-year specialist language programme, including a year of study abroad and, in most of the languages offered, Computer-Assisted Language Learning to complement traditional teaching. It aims to produce graduates with sought-after language skills, as well as an understanding of language as a system and of the cultures of the languages studied. While the focus of the programme is on living European and world languages, Latin is also offered for its value as an academic discipline and as the root of several of the other languages available.

It aims to produce graduates with much sought after language skills and an understanding of language as a system and of the cultures of the languages studied. While the focus of the programme is on living European and World languages, Latin is also offered for its value as an academic discipline and as the root of several of the other languages available.

Most of the languages offered can be taken without having been studied previously, but students of French or Irish must have taken them to Honours level in the Leaving Certificate or equivalent and all students must have demonstrated competence in a language other than English.

The Third Year of the programme is a structured Year Abroad, involving study at a partner institution or a combination of study at a partner institution and a work placement.
