University College Cork has a long and distinguished tradition of research and teaching in Irish Studies. Across the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences there is a large cohort of staff and postgraduates involved in this exciting field of study. Their research is at the leading edge of Irish Studies. This expertise has now been harnessed to develop an innovative new MA programme: Irish Studies – Identities and Representations.
A different kind of Irish Studies
Ireland, an island at Europe’s far western edge, played a vital role in the formation of Western civilisation. Ongoing emigration in the modern era has ensured that Irish cultures and identities are a dynamic global phenomenon. Such issues are at the heart of University College Cork’s new MA in Irish Studies. The programme draws on an unparalleled range of disciplinary perspectives within a strong framework of relevant theories and methodologies. The result is a distinctive and compelling intellectual experience.
