The MA in Renaissance Latin Culture at University College Cork is a one year, full-time degree (or two year, part-time degree) that offers a unique approach to Renaissance studies through reconstructing and re-enacting some of the training and perspectives of Renaissance humanists. 


While acquiring cutting edge research, analysis and communication skills, students also learn to read and speak Latin, to design exhibitions that articulate renaissance world-views, and to write imaginary funding proposals from the perspective of Renaissance humanists.

Learning outcomes
