Details Details

The MA in Geography is an innovative and flexible degree programme, offering students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of human geography while also significantly enhancing their professional skills. It is available on both a full-time (1 year, MHN60) and part-time (2 year, MHN61) basis.

The MA in Geography offers a wide-ranging programme of taught modules so students can choose what classes best suit their interests and career goals. Compulsory modules in Semester 1 (GY607, GY608) develop competencies in field methods and spatial thinking. Students select forty credits of optional modules. These can include: modules in methods that develop skills in analysis, research and public engagement; optional specialist modules in Geography, including critical ecologies, Dublin’s urban geography, spatial justice, digital geographies, landscape and health, electoral politics, among others (optional modules in Geography rotate every two years); and up to twenty credits of elective modules in Anthropology, Law, Media Studies and Sociology. The capstone of the MA is an independent research thesis on the topic of the student’s choice, working closely with a supervisor, to be submitted in September. Overall, the programme is designed to develop critical spatial thinking, deepen specialist knowledge, and strengthen employability skills from a human geography perspective.
