Educational Aims Of Programme

This joint Programme brings together the naturally complementary disciplines of History and Sociology. It seeks to enable students to use key concepts, theoretical approaches and methodologies from both disciplines in order to illuminate and critique historical and social processes in different contexts.

To this end, this Programme equips students in identifying historical and contemporary patterns of social change, divisions, diversity and inequality. Students benefit from the opportunity to transfer the skills, ideas, examples and insights they gain from both disciplines between the various modules on this programme.

The programme aims to develop student understanding of key areas of debate and practice in both disciplines, particularly those focusing on Irish and British societies. It also aims to develop students’ ability to critically evaluate and undertake themselves basic historical and sociological research. This includes the development of cross-disciplinary skills such as the ability to draw on a range of primary and secondary sources, and to analyse data.

The Programme aims to foster self-motivated learning and to develop the capacity to undertake independent study. General transferrable skills are also embedded in the design of the Programme, which are aimed at enhancing the employability of graduates. Together, these subjects together equip individuals with the ability to:

• think critically, process and understand complex information;

• write with clarity and fluency;

• evaluate primary and secondary sources;

• interpret a variety of types of data and information;

• pursue independent learning;

• work well in groups and formulate arguments.

The programme will thereby foster an atmosphere of intellectual inquiry by offering modules which encourage a stimulating interchange of ideas between disciplines.

Teaching/Learning Methods and Strategies

Seminars and tutorials offer a variety of tutor-led and student-led learning opportunities as well as a more sustained opportunity to debate and evaluate a breadth of knowledge gained independently from directed reading and from the sharing of resources and information.

Through class discussions, sometimes assigned to pairs or sub-groups, students develop a comparative understanding of different approaches to material and the ability to formulate their own arguments and responses.

Student-centred learning situations encourage the ability to present and summarise knowledge to peers in a coherent, structured form, and to further enhance organisational and inter-personal skills.

Writing skills tutorials and workshops develop a student’s ability to structure and write a coherent and lucid essay. Research skills in online bibliographical searches and the use of archives and libraries are developed through research skills workshops. Students also have the opportunity to attend classes in database management.

Group projects are used to encourage students to collaborate with peers, negotiate the demands of teamwork and develop their understanding of a topic.

Methods of Assessment

Examinations and essays require that students demonstrate coverage of material, appropriate methods of analysis, the ability to discriminate between arguments, and the ability to form an independent argument.

Written exams help students gain a knowledge of a topic that can be readily and directly applied to a set problem or question, and also test their ability to select relevant information and to write clearly and concisely within a set time.

Essays test their ability to collect, order and shape information, and to recognise ways in which to present and prioritise material.

Coursework is required to be submitted in a specified form and to fixed deadlines, thus teaching students to learn to prioritise assignments and objectives and to hone their organisational and time-management skills.

Feedback is provided for each type and instance of assessment and students may seek dedicated feedback sessions with course tutors. The Personal Tutor system facilitates student reflection upon academic performance and assists in developing strategies for improvement.
