MA in 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.
