Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

Consider your options carefully. It is likely that you are expecting top grades in your Leaving Certificate if you are considering pharmacy as a career so there will be plenty of doors open to you. Make sure you do plenty of work experience in different areas of pharmacy and if it is healthcare you are interested in then consider getting some work experience in medicine etc. I know quite a few people who have completed a pharmacy degree only to realise they actually want to do medicine!

Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Summary... header image

Archaeology involves documenting the physical remains of ancient civilisations, and interpreting them to gain an understanding of human cultures, the factors that influence them, and their development over time. 

Archaeology is a truly interdisciplinary subject and includes the study of history and geography alongside ancient DNA and bone chemistry. Besides academic lectures and tutorials students may also work on excavations, in the laboratory or within the School's Experimental Archaeology space on campus.

The BA degree in UCD (DN500) may be taken as a Joint Honours Degree or a Single Honours Degree. Joint Honours' students take two subjects to degree level (and indicate their two subject choices on their CAO form). Single Honours' students take one subject to degree level. In first year of both programmes students also select an additional subject to study which they can drop at the end of the academic year. Archaeology may be taken either as a Single Honours or Joint Honours degree.
