Technology Studies

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

The incorporation of technology into modern society has often been the cause of political and philosophical debate. The main concern is whether technology truly helps or harms humanity. Some argue that overuse of technology is harmful to the environment, while others believe it is a necessary facet of human development.

Ireland is an island to the north-west of continental Europe. It is the third-largest island in Europe and the twentieth-largest island on Earth. To its east is the larger island of Great Britain, from which it is separated by the Irish Sea.
