Local History MA
2 Years Part- Time
Please note that the next intake for this programme will be September 2020
The aim of the course is to systematically and coherently develop a range of historical research skills and thereby, further the historical understanding of local and regional communities and societies.
"I studied for the MA in Local History at the University of Limerick and can safely say that this was a life changing experience for me. I have always loved history and I wanted to explore what happened in my local area after the War of Independence. The MA course gave me the skills I needed to carry out the research and most importantly to be able to put that research into a readable thesis. It was a challenging but extremely rewarding experience and I was supported fully on my journey by the lecturers in the Department of History who made the classes interesting and informative. I would highly recommend the UL MA programme to anyone interested in the history of their place and people."
