Mode of Teaching Delivery and Timetables - Department of Government and Politics
The Department of Government and Politics is committed to provide a high quality educational experience, offering our students as much face to face time as possible whilst keeping students and staff safe. To comply with government guidelines and to ensure the safety of both our students and staff, the majority of our degree programmes will be delivered in a blended fashion in 2020-2021. This means students will engage in both online learning (live online events and pre-made online content) and on-campus learning (in-person sessions at UCC). How each programme will be delivered depends on a number of factors including the discipline being studied, the class size, external accreditation requirements and of course public health guidelines.
- Undergraduate programmes
The BA Politics 1 induction meeting will take place on Wednesday the 30th of September 2020 at 2pm ONLINE.
The BSc Government and Political Science 1 Orientation Meeting will take place on Tuesday the 22nd of September 2020 and live Q&A will begin at 2pm.
- Postgraduate programmes
The MSc Government and Politics and MSc International Public Policy and Diplomacy induction meeting will take place on Monday the 28th of September 2020 at 4pm in Boole 1 (the location might change to online depending on the Government regulations, students will be notified in advance if the location changes).
Programmes in Government and Politics will have a mix of face to face teaching with the full class in attendance, face to face teaching with staggered attendance (eg. class split into groups who will attend lectures in halls and online in alternate weeks), and online teaching. Every lecture will be recorded to facilitate students who may be unable to attend lecture halls.
In some instances modules may be scheduled in rooms that cannot be made safe given the likelihood of aerosol virus transmission (e.g. small classrooms in the Boole). In these cases, if alternative physical space cannot be found, any face-to-face teaching will need to be supplemental to virtual teaching, and take place out-doors.
In the section below ‘Our Programmes’ timetable information is being made available for the coming semester. These timetables will be updated as more specific information becomes available for core and elective modules.
