At the Department of English we have a strong commitment to Graduate Studies and Continuous Professional Development.

Our MA, MLitt and PhD programmes build on the notable international expertise of our faculty in Irish literature and drama; postcolonial studies; gender; and literary theory. Our Higher Diploma in English is designed for applicants who already hold a BA or comparable degree, and who wish to add English to their list of qualifications.

Our Graduate students become part of a Department that is committed to scholarly excellence and to expanding the boundaries of knowledge in the fields of literature and cultural theory.  As part of our graduate community, you will have access to specialised Department Research seminars featuring new research by our faculty and also invited speakers.
