Like every paper you’re going to deliver for your Leaving Cert, you must make sure your answer engages with the question asked and you are extremely clear, as well as being able to manage and control your language. Be careful of your grammar and spelling as they will bring your grade down if your making obvious mistakes again and again. Don’t rely on notes. Know your texts and be able to analyse them in the exam. The examiner wants to see that you can think for yourself and not just reproduce some essay you and half the class has learned off. Look at the film again if possible.

The curriculum is grounded in dance technique studio courses, with a 32 semester-hour ballet and contemporary dance requirement and additional requirements in jazz, tap, improvisation, and alternate forms. A wide range of courses complement the program's technique component that employ dance as a vehicle for the study of the human body, the creative process, musical form, the history of world cultures, psychology, educational theory and practice, and technical design for the stage and other multi-media formats.
The curriculum is grounded in studio courses in dance technique, with a 32 semester hour requirement in ballet and contemporary dance and additional requirements in jazz, tap, improvisation, and alternate forms. At the completion of technique courses, B.F.A. candidates must attain levels of performance higher than the levels required of candidates of the A.B. in Dance. Complementing the B.F.A. program's technique component are the requirement of four semesters of membership in one of the department's pre-professional performance companies and a range of courses that employ dance as a vehicle for study of the human body, the creative process, musical form, the history of world cultures, psychology, educational theory and practice, and technical design for the stage and other multi-media formats.
Consumer Foods majors examine the functions of ingredients in foods and food products. Students also learn how to conduct analytical evaluation of foods, including color, pH, viscosity, and moisture content. Sensory characteristics (appearance, aroma, taste, flavor, texture) which impact consumer acceptance of food products when ingredients are modified or removed are also examined. Students learn to apply this knowledge to the selection, preparation, and processing of food in commercial and industrial environments.
"I am an intern at a local environmental design firm, Koons Environmental Design, where I have worked on multiple UGA projects, residential designs around town, as well as other institutional projects in Georgia. Working at this firm has been extremely helpful and enriching to the continuing of my career as a landscape architect. I cannot speak any higher to my time spent at the office. I really feel now what it’s like to work in the real world, and can’t wait to continue that after I graduate"
Writing skills are developed in the context of the student’s particular discipline(s) and documented in a published e-Portfolio that presents and reflects on projects, experiences, critical thought, research, and communication skills. This provides evidence for outside evaluators and showcases a volume of best work.
''I like teaching any course that relates to diversity and our complexity as human beings in relationship to one another. As a therapist, I am interested in how people develop and change across the lifespan and how to help people navigate the complexity of their identities, contexts, relationships and life cycle transitions. I offer a strength-based approach to my work that helps people understand the nature of their problem while moving toward a more positive and healthy way of thinking and being.''
''UGA has one of the best horticulture degree programs in the United States. The university is directly linked to the cooperative extension service, which hires graduates to work as extension agents and could potentially be a job opportunity after graduation. I work at the UGArden as an intern. I do daily tasks that include irrigation design and assembly, planting and harvesting fruits and vegetables, starting plants and land maintenance, and working extensively with the beehives located in the UGArden. I became heavily involved in the Horticulture Club and am now the president. There are so many like-minded people in Athens, and it is just amazing how smooth the transition was and continues to be with the folks here.''
Career opportunities include management, production, marketing, or postharvest handling of vegetables, fruits, flowers, or ornamental plants; landscape contracting; sales or technical advisement with a commercial firm; field advisor or manager of nurseries, greenhouses, parks, arboretums, botanical gardens, and garden centers; high school or technical school teaching; horticultural journalist; agricultural extension agent; and others.
The Horticulture major at UGA educates students in many aspects of plant science including physiology, nutrition, identification, soils, pest control, design, and sustainability. Students tailor their coursework around one of four specializations: 1) Landscape Contracting – ornamental plants and landscape design, installation, and maintenance; 2) General Horticulture – a broader range of study of fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, and greenhouse crops; 3) Sustainable Food Production – understanding how to grow fruits and vegetables using organic and other sustainable practices; or 4) Horticulture Science – a graduate student track that supplements foundational courses with chemistry, genetics, and statistics.
Studying history means analyzing the many forces that shape human experience, and learning to see how heterogeneous societies are, even within a single historical moment. Students develop both depth and breadth of knowledge of geographical regions of the world, time periods in history, and thematic approaches to understanding social, political, and economic changes in human societies. And in the process they learn to handle complex evidence with subtlety and skepticism, and to speak and write with concision and force.
