This course provides an authoritative introduction to the disciplines of military history and strategic studies.
The course introduces the key concepts, theories, debates and issues within the field and will equip students with the knowledge and skills required to develop a sophisticated understanding of the history and conduct of war, of contemporary strategy and of current Irish and European security policies.
The course will appeal to those interested in history, international relations, security studies and war studies. However, no specialist prior knowledge is required.
The course will be delivered through a variety of lectures, seminars and tutorials. Students must take two core courses and two thesis related modules (HY678 & HY679) in addition to two modules chosen from a list of electives available that year.
Students who have completed the MA in History and Strategic Students have gone on to a variety of different careers including, teaching, journalism, retail and work in the service industry. A number of students have chosen to pursue careers in the Defence Forces in Ireland and overseas.
The normal admission requirement is for at least a Second Class Honours degree in history or other related disciplines within the Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences. Candidates may be asked to attend an interview. Individuals who do not meet the specified criteria may be accepted on a case-by-case basis where they are able to demonstrate equivalent relevant experience. Such candidates may be asked to provide an example of their written work and to attend an interview. Applicants must have a recognised primary degree which is considered equivalent to Irish university primary degree level.
