There are a range of undergraduate modules exploring the history of medicine and welfare available as part of the School of History's undergraduate syllabus. A Masters Programme in the History of Welfare & Medicine in Society is available in the School of History and Archives at UCD. (Apply here). This programme is designed for high calibre graduates who want to pursue an innovative history MA degree. It is suitable for graduates with a BA degree or a primary degree in the Humanities or in a cognate field such as medicine or nursing. While some background in the history of medicine and welfare is helpful, it is not mandatory. Our PhD programme is a three to four year programme of independent but supervised research, which makes an original contribution to a historical subject. There is a lively cohort of PhD students associated with the UCD Centre for the History of Medicine in Ireland. All members of staff associated with the Centre welcome enquiries from students wishing to enrol in a PhD programme.
