SCHOOL OF HISTORY, ANTHROPOLOGY, PHILOSOPHY AND POLITICS
Offering a wide variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in each of our disciplines, the School provides a rich learning environment and strong student support. Gain the skills and experiences employers value under the guidance of world leading academics who are at the forefront of their fields.
Delving into the past
History is about understanding the past in its own terms as well as for its relevance to the present. Our courses range from the ancient world to the recent past and cover Ireland and Britain, Europe, Asia, Africa and America.
Anthropology seeks to understand what it is to be human across the world, studying societies across space and time in order to grasp their cultural similarities and differences. By doing this, it opens windows onto worlds different from your own, and also provides mirrors for reflection about your own cultural world.
INFORMATIVE, INTELLECTUALLY STIMULATING AND REWARDING
The academic study of politics is concerned with the sources of conflict, co-operation, power and decision-making within and between societies, how differences are expressed through ideology and organisation, and how, if at all, disagreements and problems are resolved.
The School hosts interdisciplinary courses offered through our Institute of Irish Studies, an MA in Irish Studies and the International Summer School in Irish Studies. The Summer School runs in June and July and is open to all with an interest in studying Ireland.
