Irish Dance Studies MA
1 year Full- Time
The MA in Irish Dance Studies programme is a one-year, full-time taught postgraduate programme. It considers Irish dance practices within cultural, historical and practice-based perspectives. Students on the programme critically engage with relevant literature and dance practices and undertake field research in a relevant Irish dance study of their choice. They also have the opportunity to interact with students on other related programmes at the Irish World Academy. The aim of the programme is to provide students with contextual, historical and embodied knowledge relating to different Irish dance practices. It also provides an invaluable foundation for those wishing to pursue dance research to doctoral level.
