The MA in Celtic Civilisation at UCC offers great training to students interested in the language, literature and culture of the medieval Celtic countries. It provides opportunities for postgraduates to study medieval Irish, medieval Welsh and Latin. You can develop your scholarly potential by directed independent study and taught modules, and by working with staff who are internationally recognised in areas such as medieval Irish Christianity, Celtic mythology, paleography, textual editing, and legendary history. MA students will join a large cohort of international and Irish students already engaged in postgraduate studies in the Department of Early and Medieval Irish, UCC.
Placement or Study Abroad Information
Upon successful completion of the Master of Arts in Celtic Civilisation, students often go on to Ph.D. degrees at home and abroad. In recent years, many of our students have received scholarships to study for further degrees in North America, Scotland, Germany and Wales, as well as in Ireland. As we have numerous formal links with higher education institutions overseas, students who avail of the opportunity to pursue their doctoral studies in UCC may elect to spend some time abroad as part of their course.
