Congratulations to all our students on completing your assessment and on your results for the first and second semester!

A message from the Head of Department, Prof. Seán Ó Riain

Dear students,
 
Congratulations on your results in this most uncertain and difficult of academic years. We are very proud of the work that you have produced under these circumstances.
 
For those of you who have graduated, we wish you well and hope to see many of you in the future as postgraduate students or as visitors. Hopefully, we will be able to see you in person for some form of celebration of your degrees in the fairly near future.
 
For students who need to repeat/resit, please read the university regulations carefully and ask for advice. The best place to start is:
https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/exams/resitting-and-repeat-information
 
The details of assessment for each module in Politics and Sociology will be available on the module moodle pages in the coming days, including how you should submit the assignments. Lecturers will also let you know what times during the next 6 weeks that they are out of contact and/or on holidays.
Please make sure that you are registered for resits - if you submit work on Moodle without being registered you will not get a mark!
 
All assessment is in the form of written assignments. There are no examinations (including for first semester modules). The deadline for submitting assignments is August 10th.
 
Please contact sociology.department@mu.ie, or myself, with any general questions or your lecturers regarding your modules.
 
Best wishes
Seán
