This is a full-time one year course that aims to provide graduates with the necessary critical and analytical skills to make sense of societies undergoing rapid and dramatic transitions. The programme is set against the backdrop of global turbulence in financial markets, the related economic downturn and the political fallout that has ensued. Societies such as Ireland are adjusting very rapidly to change in the external and internal environments. This requires us to re-think prevailing assumptions about the nature and
direction of socio-economic development in Ireland and elsewhere.
A Bachelor of Arts in sociology or cognate discipline with 2.2 or higher, or international equivalent is required.
For international students for whom English is not their first language, an English language exam certificate showing IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent) is required.
