Degrees by CAO Code > DN200 Science

DN200 Science (SCU1)
School: Science Admin Office



UCD offers the widest choice of Science programmes in Ireland, providing degree courses in Biological, Chemical, Geological, Mathematical, Physical and Computer Sciences. We recognise that the transition from school to university may be challenging and all our staff are committed to supporting and assisting students during their university life.

UCD Horizons enhances the subject choice available to Stage 1 students. In addition to Science modules, modules from other disciplines, e.g. languages, business and law, are also on offer.

You have chosen one of four streams within DN200 depending on your scientific interests. By choosing a stream, you can tailor your study plan to focus on a particular area or sample more widely to explore your interests.

The list below provides information on the modules taken by students in Stages 1 and Stage 2 of DN200. Information on the modules required for degrees in Stages 3 and 4 can be found in the list of undergraduate Science degrees.

Additional information on programme pathways can be found on the Science Office website
