We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The School brings together academic experts, researchers, and students with interests in the study of History, Anthropology, Philosophy & Politics. With over 90 academic members of staff with expertise in a range of areas, the School is the largest centre for the study of History, Anthropology, Philosophy & Politics in Ireland, and one of the largest in the United Kingdom.
You will have the opportunity to work with academics who are truly world-leading scholars in their specialist fields. Staff will enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience with you. We work hard to make the research environment at Queen’s a world-leading one to which your research can contribute.
The School prides itself on each year having a large cohort of postgraduate taught students taking one of its many and varied Masters and Postgraduate Diploma programmes.
The School is committed to teaching of the highest quality. The principal aim of our postgraduate programmes is to develop your capacity for scholarship: to equip you with the necessary skills, and to give you the opportunity to make an original contribution to knowledge. At PhD level your training is primarily through the work of staff members assigned to supervise your research, and also through seminars and workshops organised by the School, specialist training provided by the Graduate School, and other professional development opportunities run by Queens for postgraduate research students. We encourage students to take advantage of all the opportunities open to them as a postgraduate student within the School, Faculty, University and beyond.
