The MA in History is an innovative addition to the taught programmes of the School of History at UCC. It is a 12-month programme (24-months part-time).
It offers unique flexibility and diversity: choose your area of specialisation (Modern Ireland, Medieval and Renaissance History, Media and History, and International and European History) and between multiple modules. You select from diverse topics, themes and approaches such as revolution and regime change, collective memory and commemoration, cultural heritage, the medieval world view, Ireland’s relationships and encounters with the wider world, identity, nationalism, the evolution of healthcare, radicalism and social unrest, the historical uses and applications of modern media, war and peace, booms and busts since the dawn of modern finance, contemporary history, US foreign relations or feminist history. Take the opportunity to focus on political, economic, social, cultural, international or transnational history.
In addition, the MA in History provides the option of a work placement with a relevant host in the media, heritage, publishing business, private or public sectors to apply and enhance your skills. The thoughtful and inventive assessment mix will provoke and challenge you, and the internationally-respected faculty team will mentor you throughout the degree. Equip yourself with a sophisticated appreciation of history and its applications.
