Irish Studies - Research
Applications are welcome in all aspects of Irish Studies but projects are particularly welcome in the following areas: bilingual and comparative studies of modern and contemporary Irish writing; the politics and practice of translation; historical cartography, colonial and imperial geographies; traditional Irish music and dance.
It is a requirement of all MLitt candidates at the Centre for Irish Studies that they adopt an interdisciplinary approach to their research.
Admission to a research degree is at the discretion of the potential supervisor and the head of discipline, and is based on a proposal from the applicant following discussion with the member of staff whose academic area of interest is most appropriate. Candidates should have obtained an honours degree (Second Class Honours, Grade 1 [or equivalent international qualification] minimum).
Applications are made online via the NUI Galway Postgraduate Applications System
