French - Research
Under a Structured Research Programme, students are supported in the development of their research by undertaking professional and specialist modules over the course of their research degree.
Research Environment: The School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures (SMLLC) runs friendly, informal research seminars and regularly invites guest lecturers to share their expertise with the Departments in the School. Members of the Department, including postgraduate students, participate in national and international conferences.
As part of the structured research programme, the student, in consultation with his/her supervisor, will devise a plan with a specified number of modules taken each year of the programme. Students also have the opportunity to take suitable modules from the taught MA in French, if they have not already done so.
Candidates for the MLitt must have obtained at least 2nd Class Honours Grade I in their primary degree, or equivalent. Candidates for all post-graduate degrees are required to have resided for a period of one academic year or its equivalent in France or a French-speaking region. Applicants must have a recognised primary degree which is considered equivalent to Irish university primary degree level.
