This course is a year 2 core course within the Bachelor of Nursing with Honours (Adult). It aims to provide students with an understanding of individuals’ experience of common mental health problems and the impact that this has on their ability to engage with everyday life. Underpinned by the biopsychosocial model of mental illness, and taking a recovery-oriented approach, this course will equip students to engage with people who experience mental health problems as people who are contextually situated within their particular social context. The development of relational understanding and interpersonal skills is central to this course which will provide students with the opportunity to practice their communication skills in a safe environment.

Indicative knowledge content includes common psychiatric diagnoses, symptoms and therapeutic approaches; biological, social and psychological theories of mental illness; Recovery; particular mental health issues affecting people at different life stages; suicide. Skills are developed through communication skills workshops including working with self-harm and suicidal thoughts.

This course will introduce students to the social nature of health and illness, and to different models that inform aspects of our understanding of health phenomena.

This course is about reimagining the future and seeing ourselves as part of this future. Each year, this course will examine a single, highly current global event or challenge. It will explore the broader social, economic and environmental issues which have driven the challenge and how the impact of the event or challenge is shaping the future. The course will be contextualised by the UN Sustainable Development Goals Agenda (2015-2030), and its vision of a world shaped by the common good.

This course takes an innovative approach to interdisciplinary education by shifting the site of learning from the seminar room to the city outside. It brings together groups of students from diverse subject areas to explore and engage with the contemporary city as a site for new ideas, designs and methods. Students will be encouraged to see themselves as part of a connected global city and to engage with the complex challenges of urban life in the twenty-first century.

The course introduces a range of contemporary critical theories and debates on the body and identity, including feminist studies, gender studies, post-modernism, post-humanism, medical humanities, disability studies, visual culture, cultural theory, and philosophy. The course will also examine the ways in which digital developments are reshaping our understanding of our bodies and question what it means to be human. All the course sessions will focus on interdisciplinary perspectives and questions around the relationship between the body, identity, media, and technology.

Sustainable Development 1A: Introducing Sustainable Development addresses the central problems facing us in the twenty-first century, which concern access to water, food, energy, shelter, as well as justice, in the context of a destabilising climate and degradation of environmental resources. The course debates principles, concepts, contexts, issues and applications of sustainable development from the perspective of different disciplines, and helps students situate themselves in these debates as well as reflect on their own stance.

The course will examine different types of foreign market entry strategy; the world trade regime and the various elements that comprise this environment e.g. EU/ NAFTA; and issues in International Finance, Management, Production and Labour.

This is a challenging interdisciplinary course, based on weekly seminars based around the theme Pandemic: A Changed World? The course aims to engage students in thinking about the challenges that now confront our society and make them aware of the role of academic research and scholarship in meeting these challenges. Students will be expected to address key issues across discipline boundaries and develop an understanding of the relevance and impact of their own subject in the broader context. Students will develop and test a range of academic skills on the course by engaging with course materials, researching the topics in depth, participation in online weekly seminars and working in small groups to produce a collaborative project on a chosen topic.

A theoretical and practical study of the diversity of living organisms and the evolutionary forces that created it. The course examines the form and function of micro-organisms, animals and plants in terms of their behavioural, physiological and structural adaptations to habitat, and how these evolved. The course also covers genetics, and how organisms combat attacks from pathogens.

This course presents a broad introduction to Environmental Engineering and Sustainability, covering the Hydrological Cycle, how to assess the quantity of water available for use (potable water supply, irrigation, etc.), how to ensure the required water quantity is sustainably met and what challenges are currently faced by Engineers. Furthermore, transport contamination in water will also be covered through Transport Phenomena Principles. Environmental sustainability will be examined in an Engineering context, including basic concepts such as life cycle analysis and environmental impact assessment.

This course examines the dynamics of ecosystems and the environment from local to global scales. In the course we focus on 1) understanding the drivers of environmental change from decades to millennia; 2) the responses of Polar, Temperate and Tropical regions to environmental change and their roles in further reinforcing change to both climate and ecosystems; 3) human-environment interactions and 4) methods and concepts that enable you to interpret environmental change. We examine the concepts of systems, thresholds, feedbacks, sensitivity and fragility, and how this relates and aids our understanding of environmental change.

This course introduces python programming, software engineering and design techniques to Engineering students. It also introduces the use of libraries like SciPy, NumPy and Matplotlib for solving equations (using appropriate numerical methods) and the use of JuPyter Lab notebooks to present calculations.
