MA in Local History (with UL)


Course Description

This programme is offered jointly by faculty from the Departments of History and Geography, Mary Immaculate College and the Department of History, University of Limerick. The programme meets the needs of graduates in history, or in related disciplines (e.g. Irish Studies, human geography, archaeology, anthropology) who wish to carry out historical research, especially in relation to a particular locality. The course is particularly suited for those hoping to proceed to PhD programmes in history, but also facilitates those interested in historical research for their own personal development.

The course is part-time, over two academic years. The emphasis is on conducting and presenting research. It consists of six taught modules delivered through lectures and seminars, as well as the preparation of a thesis for submission at the end of the second year.

Entry Requirements

The normal requirement is a primary degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. Irish Studies, Geography, Archaeology, Anthropology) with at least second class honours. Applicants with approved equivalent qualifications or substantial relevant research or professional experience may also be considered. Final selection may involve an interview.
