Description

Advertisement

The MA in Irish Historical Research, University College Cork is a taught, one-year (or two years part-time) course that provides training in the research skills needed to investigate and interpret modern Irish politics and society. Focused on the period c.1840-1990, the course is structured around three taught modules and a dissertation of 20,000 words. The modules cover a deliberately broad range - from the history of the press in Ireland and its interactions with the main processes of political and social change, to the history of female activism in Ireland from the campaign for the vote to the campaign for employment equality and access to fertility control in the 1970s and 1980s. There is also the opportunity to choose a module related to the history of the Irish Revolution, 1916-22. The dissertation allows students to design, carry out and write up their own research project that will build on the broad themes explored in the taught modules.
