Maynooth University
MLitt Anthropology

Most of us are familiar with taught masters and doctoral (PhD) degrees but the masters of literature (MLitt) degree, which is offered for different subjects in various disciplines across different higher education institutions, often gets overlooked.
MLitts are research-based degrees which can, in some respects, be considered as shorter PhDs. Focused on a research question, they offer candidates the chance to undertake independent, original scholarship under the supervision of an experienced academic.
One of the options available at Maynooth is the two-year full-time or three-year part-time MLitt in anthropology which, like all MLitt programmes, helps students to develop research skills and pursue their own research interests.
Maynooth is the only third-level institution in Ireland offering an anthropology course, which focuses on human culture and behaviour across human history and geography.
All research degrees at Maynooth require students to take a minimum of 10 credit courses with pass or fail modules; these are chosen in consultation with your thesis supervisor.
Anthropologists have an understanding of cultural diversity and graduates have gone on to work in a variety of careers including health, education, product design, business, arts, media, NGOs and more.
Applicants should have a minimum 2.1 degree (normally in anthropology) and a proposal for an original research topic that is accepted by the anthropology department.
EU fees: €6,500 per year
