This History taught MA programme at DCU Drumcondra can be taken either in a full-time or part-time capacity.
In the second year all students will be required to attend and participate in a research seminar and to complete a minor thesis. Students completing the M.A. programme in a full-time capacity will complete their thesis under the supervision of a designated member of the Department parallel with their taking the courses referred to earlier in this paragraph.
The object of the Historiography course is to foster intellectual self-awareness and to encourage participants to reflect on trends in the writing of History, so they can place their own research in its wider historiographical context.
The Methodology course aims to equip students in a practical way for the challenges posed by a research project. The special subject is intended to provide you with an opportunity to engage in a detailed and close fashion with a particular era in Irish History. You may choose your thesis topic from any period provided it is agreed with the Department.
The taught programme in history aims:
- to deepen students´ knowledge and understanding of modern Irish history
- to familiarise students with the major trends in Irish and international historiography
- to develop students´ knowledge of research methods and their ability to locate and to interpret historical evidence
- to enable students to apply the research and interpretative skills they have acquired in the identification and completion of an original research topic (minor thesis)
