Description

Employment is central to our lives. For most of us it is not just a source of income, it shapes whom we think we are.Employment studies links the sociology of work to industrial relations, human resource management and public policy. The Irish labour market is interwoven with that of Europe. This new graduate programme studies Irish employment policy with a strong focus on the European dimension.

The postgraduate diploma (PGradDip) and the MSc are designed for students whose current or planned career deals with employment issues whether in the private or public sectors.The MSc will equip students with the necessary research skills which are increasingly required for a contemporary career, be it in market research, public policy or academia.

The programme begins in September of each year.The MSc is a whole year course: there are two teaching semesters (September -December and January-May) with an individual dissertation during the summer. The PGradDip lasts for the two teaching semesters only. Both MSc and PGradDip can be taken part time over two academic years.
