History at the University of Limerick is one of the most popular subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Students acquire and develop skills in research, analysis, presentation and debate by exploring key periods and themes in the history of Ireland, Europe and beyond.

Historical reasoning and imagination are essential human activities, and are the means through which we understand the changing role of individuals, societies and institutions.

Studying history at undergraduate, postgraduate or at doctoral level prepares the future graduate to be creative, imaginative, informed and articulate, ready to face the challenges of today's world.
