History is the systematic examination of human experience over time. It attempts to explain the origins and evolution of the societies we live in, from as many points of view as possible.

  • History explores the complex processes of social and economic change, the choice of one set of political or ethical values over another, the context in which new ideas arise, and much more. The written word is one way of gathering information about the past, but new technologies and research methods allow for the study of history to take place through other mediums.
  • The Department’s long-standing reputation for excellence and leadership in historical scholarship both in Ireland and internationally is one reason for the popularity of History at Maynooth. We have also kept our discipline vibrant, engaging and of practical value to students. We provide a solid grounding in the practice of history and boast expertise in a wide range of specialist topics such as life in medieval Ireland, the intersection of American and world history, the First World War, and gender and sexual politics.
