About the MA Irish Studies

From Poetry to Parades

Our Irish Studies courses range from the poetry of Seamus Heaney (himself a QUB graduate) to the politics of contested parades in Northern Ireland; from the literature of the Gaelic Revival to the controversies around contemporary commemorations of the Easter Rising and the First World War.

View Ireland from a Belfast Perspective

The MA features an interdisciplinary core module on ‘Belfast: Place, Identity and Memory in a Contested City’

this offers a unique introduction to Irish Studies through the study of Belfast - Ireland's second city and the capital of Northern Ireland since 1921 - and its relationship to the rest of the island and the wider world
