About the course

The aim of the PG Diploma in Geography is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and competence necessary to critically analyse contemporary issues and problems in Ireland, Europe and the broader world from a geographical perspective. Students will be exposed to contemporary debates in human geography for which Maynooth Geographers are internationally recognised for, including in environmental, political, urban, cultural, historical, social, and health geography, among other areas. Students can also gain training in mixed research methods appropriate for geographically-informed research, including fieldwork, qualitative and quantitative research methods, GIS and remote sensing. Students will also be exposed to working with civil society and government partners, and develop their sense of the ethical and practical demands of such collaborative research.
