The focus is on Ireland's affinities with the outside world: our European inheritance in prehistoric times, and the manner in which Ireland influenced European culture in the early Christian period. Celtic literature, mythology, languages, learning, and the Celtic saints are particular topics of study.
Students of Celtic Civilisation program from University College Cork are encouraged to develop their skills in a close reading of sources. You will have the opportunity to study medieval Welsh and Latin, and to take advanced courses in literary studies, paleography, and textual editing.
Provision has been made for supervised independent research to allow you to broaden and deepen your scholarly interests, while a 20,000-word thesis gives scope to postgraduates to complete a significant piece of work in a specific area of interest.
