The United States is the most influential nation in the world. However, a number of challenges in recent years have called into question the sustainability of American leadership abroad and prosperity at home. These include, but are not limited to, the notion of American decline in relation to rising powers such as China: a political system that appears to have entered an extended period of dysfunction; recurring problems in race relations; and rising economic inequality. This MA degree programme, which is the first of its kind in Europe or North America, allows students to explore in depth the foreign policy and political challenges facing the United States. Drawing upon the disciplines of history and political science, it explores a wide variety of topics such as the origins of American exceptionalism, the importance placed upon individual liberty, the emergence of the US as a world power, the Cold War, transatlantic relations, presidential and congressional election, race and gender, partisanship and more. Modules in this programme are taught by resident UCD faculty and by visiting lecturers, who will consider theoretical and practical perspectives. The programme will interest those seeking a career in government, media, in the non-profit sector, in business and those hoping to undertake advanced study in these areas.

It is a multidisciplinary programme that promotes study of the interactions of cultural social and political factors. It aims to deepen and widen students’ knowledge of major topics and issues as well as to enable them to develop a significant measure of expertise in the subject chosen for the dissertation. The MA programme draws on the expertise of UCD faculty across a number of departments, as well as that of the Professor of American Studies and the contribution of visiting scholars.

“Doing an MA in American Studies at the UCD Clinton Institute was one of the best decisions I have made. Each of the classes offered were interesting, engaging and left me with a deeper understanding of American political issues. I am now putting everything I learned at the Institute to good use by working in Washington DC and so I would definitely recommend the programme to anyone considering it” – Niamh

This programme is intended for students with a numerate background but who may have insufficient background knowledge to gain entry to the MSc programme.

The MA in Statistics is of 16 months durations (4 semesters) and will bring students to the same level as the 1 year MSc degree in Statistics. Currently students without sufficient statistical background knowledge can attain Masters level proficiency by first completing the Higher Diploma in Statistics followed by the MSc in Statistics, which together takes 2 years. The MA in Statistics provides an alternative pathway in 16 months. There is no comparable programme in Ireland or the UK.

This programme runs for 16 months or 4 semesters (Full time)/ 32 months or 8 semesters (Part time)

This MA programme in Media and International Conflict is designed to enable students to develop understanding of the ways in which media interact with war, international conflict and security. It analyzes the complex roles played by the media in the enactment and representation of international conflict and addresses the relationships among media, governments, the military, and NGOs in framing perceptions of international conflict.

It provides an interdisciplinary approach that considers both cultural and political dimensions of media responses to international conflicts, focusing on issues such as : public diplomacy as soft power, human rights and representation, distinctions between information and propaganda, the ethics of depicting human suffering, the role of new and social media in perceptions of conflict, the visual economy of the production, circulation and reception of imagery of conflict, and the effects of news reporting on government policy and NGO activity. Modules in this programme are taught by resident UCD faculty and by external speakers, both academics and practitioners, who will broaden intellectual discussion and speak to examples of media work.
The programme will interest those seeking a career in international communications, media, NGOs, public sector or professionals seeking more critical understanding of the international dimensions of their industry, and those wishing to prepare for advanced research in this area.

“Studying in the Clinton Institute was a wonderful experience. The classes are small, which means you really get to know everybody, and there is a very comfortable atmosphere. A wide range of topics ensured that everybody got a chance to study and discuss areas that they are passionate about. Lively debates were the norm!. This MA was a fascinating journey through history, current affairs, politics and media. It offered a great opportunity to build strong research, writing and presenting skills, with the help of diligent and engaging staff of the Institute. I would do it all over again if I could!” – Karen

Future managers must have the capacity to be team players, to motivate and lead others, to communicate and negotiate effectively, and must possess excellent interpersonal skills. The MSc in Marketing Practice transforms graduates into highly professional managers.

Based at The Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business, UCD, this is a one-year, full-time masters degree programme that has been carefully structured to facilitate its participants’ professional development. The programme uses the concept of ‘action learning’ to blend graduates’ existing theoretical knowledge with real commercial experience in a variety of marketing situations, thus improving creative, technical, motivational, leadership,
communication and inter-personal skills. In short, teaching them to practice as managers.

Programme participants – referred to as ‘Marketing Advisors’ – work closely with clients ranging from start-up concerns to multi-national organisations, while undertaking professional assignments such as:
• Marketing and business strategy development
• Quantitative and qualitative market research
• Market feasibility studies
• Consumer surveys
• Economic impact studies.

Personal and professional skills developed during the course include:
• Leadership
• Motivation and team building
• Client and project management
• Implementation and control of plans
• Self-reliance and individual decision making
• Time management
• Communication – written and oral
• Problem solving
• Analytical skills
• Critical thinking
• Confidence building
• Negotiation and conflict resolution.

The personal and professional development is achieved through:
• Client assignments
• Communication skills series
• On-going support and guidance from management team
• Structured feedback and appraisal process
• Mentor programme
• In-company executive shadowing
• Business networking
• Action learning dissertation
• Courses in contemporary issues in business and marketing
• Lectures in leading edge management thought
• Briefing seminars from leading business people.

The programme encourages applications from international students and those whose first language is other than English.
Applicants must submit:
• An up-to-date curriculum vitae
• Two passport size photographs
• A non-refundable application fee of €32 – cheque or postal order made payable to ‘UCD Marketing Development Programme’
• A short statement – 300 words maximum – entitled: “Why I should be accepted on the MSc. in Marketing Practice Degree
Programme”

This statement should:
Draw on the applicant’s personal experience and emphasise relevant experience(s) demonstrating initiative, teamwork, leadership skills and problem solving ability.
There are two intakes – in the Autumn of each year and the following Spring – the deadline for receipt of applications for both is end-March each year.

The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance attracts numerate, competitive students seeking careers in finance that stretch their quantitative talents. Read more
The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance attracts numerate, competitive students seeking careers in finance that stretch their quantitative talents. The two-year full-time programme provides an integrated and balanced curriculum of finance and computational methods that accommodates students of diverse backgrounds.

The 4-semester programme comprises 18 courses, an internship and a major project. The curriculum gives students the knowledge and skills to develop quantitative security pricing models and trading strategies for managing portfolios of equity, fixed income and derivative securities and for managing corporate financial risk.

Programme structure
The MScQF is a small programme limited to about 20 students per year. The design of the curriculum presumes relatively little prior training in either finance or mathematics. The two-year full-time MScQF integrates the content of the one-year MBS in Finance with nearly the
equivalent of a masters in applied financial mathematics. The two-year structure affords the opportunity for a summer internship with a financial firm, a crucial component of the entire training and job-hunting process.
Assessment is by both examination and project work.

Careers
Career options for MScQF graduates include funds management, investment banking, financial engineering, and corporate treasury management. The MScQF also provides the recommended coursework component of the PhD in Finance at
UCD, leading to careers in academia as well as the finance industry.

Entry requirements
Appropriate degree fields include mathematical finance, economics, mathematics, statistics, engineering and physics. As relatively little prior formal training in mathematics is presumed, we welcome applications from quantitatively inclined graduates from a standard commerce programme. Generally, applicants must have high grades and a high score on the mathematics component of the GMAT (or an equivalent test). Work experience can partially compensate for non-competitive grades.
