PhD / MLitt

Our School has a strong tradition of scholarship and research in the Irish language, Celtic Studies, Folklore & Ethnology and Irish Studies.

If you are thinking about furthering your studies with us, we invite you to view the research interests in which we can offer supervision and to come to speak to us. Both MLitt and PhD degrees involve working with an academic supervisor who will guide you throughout your research project.
