Overview

The MA in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures: Narratives of Conflict aims to provide students who already have a background in French, German or Spanish at undergraduate level with an opportunity to specialise in the area of literary analysis with particular emphasis on narratives of conflict in the cultures and societies of French-, German- and Spanish-speaking countries. The programme introduces students to academic research, new ideas and theoretical approaches. It aims to equip students with academic, analytical, creative, reflective and presentation skills in order to foster interest and involvement in the field of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with specific emphasis on narratives of conflict. It also aims to enhance students’ knowledge and understanding of important concepts of European languages, literatures, cultures and societies, in particular with regard to France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Spain and Latin American countries.
It is possible to study modules of particular interest without completing a Masters degree or to exit with a Postgraduate Diploma (Level 9) after completing 60 credits of taught modules.

Course Structure

The MA in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures: Narratives of Conflict involves two elements: a set of modules on which students will be examined in January and in May/June, and a dissertation (Minor Thesis) which students complete after their second semester.

1. Students choose a ‘lead language’; they are obliged to take both language modules in this language.
2. Students have to take at least one (in French two) of the subject-specific modules offered by the lead language subject.
3. Students have to take ML 610 (Research Skills) and the modules concerned with narratives of conflict.
4. For the remaining 10 credits, students can either choose the remaining subject-specific module(s), or they can choose two of the remaining SMLLC modules.
5. The Viva Voce Examination ML629 (conducted – at least partly – in the ‘lead language’) in early June.
6. Minor theses will be supervised by SMLLC Full-time members of staff after consultation with the student.

Career Options

This interdisciplinary MA gives students an ideal starting point for an academic career in literary studies, conflict studies or language studies. The combination of subject-specific, interdisciplinary and transferable skills, which are the intended outcome of the programme, would also make it a useful qualification for entry into the teaching profession, research work, or for careers with an international dimension, in diplomacy, journalism, business or academia.

The MA in German Language and Culture in Europe is a new jointly taught programme by German Studies experts at both Mary Immaculate College and the University of Limerick. The design of the course responds to the demand for plurilingual European citizens and reflects Ireland’s increasing integration into a constantly changing European Union in which Germany represents a crucial economic, political and cultural force. By positioning German culture firmly within an EU and broader European context, the programme explores its relationship with Europe, the cultural dimensions of the European integration process and the inter-relationship of German and neighbouring cultures. Alongside comparative cultural knowledge the programme intends to provide graduates with high-level language competence in order to equip them with both the linguistic and conceptual skills to operate in an increasingly multicultural environment in Ireland and abroad and function effectively as cultural mediators between Ireland and the German-speaking countries. Designed to prepare students for leadership roles in cross-cultural contexts both within Ireland and for the EU, this programme is also attractive to existing and future teachers of German in secondary schools, where a progressive Europeanisation of the curriculum will be one of the features of educational reforms, and to students interested in evolving employment prospects in the tourism sector or multi-national companies.

The programme will enable students to:
• Analyse and interpret German-language culture within a broader European context, including the inter-relationship between Ireland and Germany, Switzerland, Austria
• Handle a wide range of communicative situations in the foreign language and communicate in oral and written German with a high degree of accuracy and confidence
• Function as plurilingual European citizens with both the linguistic and conceptual skills to operate in a future increasingly multi-cultural environment in Ireland and abroad and function effectively as cultural mediators between Ireland and the German-speaking countries
• Fulfil leadership roles in cross-cultural contexts
• Conceptualise larger research projects (e.g. in preparation for further study towards a PhD degree) and participate in a broader intellectual community of postgraduate research and learning.

Overview

The MA in Postcolonial and World Literatures is designed to develop a strong and theoretical understanding of the texts of colonialism and postcolonialism and to explore the modalities of the local and the global. Modules variously explore the global novel, postcoloniality and queer identities, nineteenth century fiction and empire, and also modernism and world crisis. Students will be encouraged to engage with the diverse forms of postcolonial critique as well as current theoretical developments in the field, including gender and queer studies. The programme builds on the considerable research interest of faculty in the area of postcolonialism.

Course Structure

The MA in Postcolonial and World Literatures is a one-year full-time programme. Students are required to complete four 10 credit modules (two per semester). Students can select from a range of available modules (see below) including those offered on the English

Department’s other MA programmes. It is important to consider the coherence of these choices, as part of an overall programme of study, when selecting modules. Students should seek advice from the MA co-ordinator on this.

These modules are assessed by continuous assessment: a mid-term paper and a substantial research essay.

In addition, EN691 Dissertation (30 ECTS), EN694 Research Skills and EN695 Dissertation Preparation (10ECTS each) are compulsory for all students.

The mini-dissertation (EN691) is the single largest component of the MA programme. With guidance from a supervisor, students work on an independently conceived research project during the summer period and submit their dissertation at the end of August.

Overview

The MA in Spanish and Latin American Studies aims to provide students who already have a background in Spanish Studies at undergraduate level with an opportunity to develop their interest in and knowledge and understanding of the language, literatures and cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. As well as increased linguistic and intercultural competence, the programme also offers students the opportunity to develop their awareness of a variety of theoretical approaches to critical analysis; to broaden their intellectual experience; to improve their intercultural and communication skills; and to develop their transferable skills, such as research skills, presentation skills, teamwork, organization skills and time management.
It is possible to study modules of particular interest without completing a Masters degree or to exit with a Postgraduate Diploma (Level 9) in Spanish & Latin American Studies after completing 60 credits of taught modules.

Course Structure

The MA is a 90 credit programme with a combination of subject-specific modules and interdisciplinary modules.

- Taught modules (55 ECTS)
A combination of seminars and workshops will form the basis of the taught element of the programme, which includes core language modules, a number of interdisciplinary modules (taught with the Departments of French, German and Irish), and a selection of elective modules. These aim to provide students with knowledge and understanding of the linguistic, literary, visual and sociopolitical cultures of the Spanish-speaking world through the study of key texts, visual artefacts and documents.

- Minor Thesis (30 ECTS) and Oral Presentation (5 ECTS)
Students also develop their own research projects under the supervision of academics with expertise in the following areas: Latin American and Spanish Film and Visual Cultures; Chicana/o Studies; Spanish Theatre; Censorship in twentieth-century Spain; Contemporary Spanish Women’s Writing; Cultural Memory; Latin American literature; Spanish poetry; Latin American indigenous cultures; Translation; History of Language Teaching; Hispanic Lexicography.

Career Options

The programme is an ideal beginning of an academic career in Hispanism, and could prepare students for further study at PhD level. The combination of subject-specific and transferable skills, which are the intended learning outcomes of the programme, would make it a useful qualification for entry into the teaching profession, research work, or for careers with an international dimension, in business or in the public service.
