Course Director welcome note
Welcome to the Computer Science and Business Joint Honours programme. We are confident that you will find this programme stimulating and rewarding. This course is one of the Joint Honours programmes at Trinity College, with various pathways through the four years, allowing you to exit with a Major in Computer Science and Minor in Business, a Major in Business and Minor in Computer Science or a Joint Honours degree.
In first year (known in Trinity as Junior Fresh) you will spend half your time on Computer Science modules and half on Business. All modules are mandatory in first year, and are designed to give you a strong foundation for later studies in Computer Science and Business. You can find the details of these modules in the links on the left.
In second (Senior Fresh) year, you will choose to focus more on one of other of the subjects, and you will have some choice in the modules you take. Your exit award will depend on the balance of the two subjects in third and fourth year; in these years you have considerable choice of topics. See programme structure (link above).
Although you will be in classes with many other students studying Computer Science and even larger numbers studying Business, you have the advantage of being a smaller, more manageable group, with only 35-40 students per year. We hope you will form strong, supportive, possibly lifelong bonds with your class.
In order to succeed in this course, you will need to engage fully in all learning activities and to work hard. If you are having any difficulties, seek help early. The kinds of supports available to you are detailed in the course handbook.
Wishing you every success in your course.
