This programme allows students to examine and research the rich subject of Irish history from the earliest times to the present day, and to assess the major events that led to the emergence of modern Ireland. Key issues, topics and arguments are explored through specialised optional modules dealing with social, political and military themes.
The compulsory modules will provide students with an in-depth knowledge of the sources and resources that are available to undertake a detailed research study, and the ability to assess and understand the major debates and controversies that have engaged historians in Irish history.
The programme is for a duration of two semesters.
