Course content

The MA in Poetry Studies at DCU re-imagines the study of poetry, and has cultivated a vibrant community of scholars and students from a wide range of backgrounds. Poetry is not the remit of literary specialists alone, and we’re committed to demonstrating its radical influence across societies and cultures.

The Programme is internationalist, and asks that students look at poetry as an intercultural phenomenon so that a more nuanced understanding of the relationship of poetry (and song) to ideas of national heritage might be achieved. Above all, we never lose sight of poetry as a passionate medium for expressing and exploring ourselves effectively.

Information for international students
