The Culture and Environment qualification from the Atlantic Technological University provides students with a detailed knowledge of our culture (including history, archaeology, folklore and literature) and environment (including geology, ecology and the natural environment). It provides them with knowledge and skill required to work in tourism enterprises. The cultural industries and the green economy are key growth sectors in Ireland and internationally.
You will learn in many different ways in the classroom, in our customised lab and through field-trips.
Our students are actively involved in the Green Campus initiative and contributed to the Mayo Campus being the first IT campus in Ireland to be awarded the Green Flag. We were also the first third level college in Ireland to be awarded the Green Flag for biodiversity.
This programme will prepare you for careers which may include but are not limited to:
Environmental Conservation Officer
Library and Archives Assistant
Rural Recreation Office
Green Schools’ Officer
Museum Documentation Assistant
Rural and Community Development Officer
