UCD School of Politics and International Relations

Politics and international relations are in the news at UCD. UCD School of Politics and International Relations has created three new postgraduate programmes and are enrolling now for September 2006. The new programmes are in Human Rights, International Relations, and Nationalism and Ethno-Communal Conflict.

The School is organizing a Graduate Open Evening to publicize its exciting range of graduate programmes on Wednesday 19th April, 6.30-8.30pm, in the Round Room in the Quinn Building, UCD, Belfield, Dublin 4. Graduates or final-year students from all disciplines are warmly welcomed to attend.

The School has recently been created from the integration of the Department of Politics, the Dublin European Institute, and the Centre for Development Studies. The new programmes provide an integrated pathway of graduate studies, with options for a 12-month MSc, a 2-year MLitt, or a 4-year PhD. They reflect UCD’s commitment to innovative 4th level education and are co-ordinated through the Graduate School at UCD’s College of Human Sciences. They complement existing strengths in Development Studies, European Studies, Comparative Politics, Political Theory, and British-Irish Studies.

The School has strong links with leading research institutions in Europe, connecting students and researchers with a network of experts across the discipline. Commenting on the launch, Head of School Professor Attracta Ingram said, ‘The new programmes offer students a unique opportunity to follow their interests in a bold new framework of graduate education that will give them a head start in the knowledge economy. I am particularly pleased that we are able to open up the programmes to highly qualified graduates from all disciplinary backgrounds’.

Details of the three new programmes, and the other graduate programmes offered by the School, are available on the School’s website.

The School now invites applications from all interested graduates with good qualifications in any discipline. There are two closing dates for receipt of completed applications – 30th May and 30th June 2006. Up to two-thirds of available places will be offered after the 30th May deadline and the remaining third after final closing date of 30th June 2006.
