The minimal qualification for PhD applicants is: a good bachelor's degree in a relevant subject, an excellent research proposal. However, a Master's degree is often preferred as evidence of some experience in research. Holders of other qualifications are welcome to apply. For the MA programme a 1st or upper second degree is usually required.
Months of entry
MPhil/PhD research in History takes place in the Department of History and American Studies. Additionally, the Department runs an MA by Research in History, for which students write a shorter thesis on the topic of their choice. The research expertise of the staff covers medieval, early modern and 19th and 20th Century topics, with a strong emphasis on Irish and American History in the modern era. Enquiries should be directed to Professor Jackie Eales firstname.lastname@example.org.
