Course summary

Overview

History is a dynamic and growing research area at Queen's, with recent appointments adding to our strengths in public history, the history of religion, modern Ireland, modern Britain, modern Europe, the United States and twentieth-century Europe. History has a number of collaborative research initiatives with the Institute of Irish Studies at Queen's and with other universities in Ireland, the UK and abroad, including Boston College, Vanderbilt and George Washington University.

With Queen’s being part of the AHRC Northern Bridge collaboration (with Durham and Newcastle universities), there are opportunities for co-supervised doctoral work with staff at all three of these institutions.

Research

Queen’s is one of the premier research centres globally for the study of Irish history and boasts a large and active team of researchers in this field, with interests ranging from the middle ages to the twentieth century. We have particular in depth strength in the history of Irish religion, politics, gender relations, social history, and Ireland's relationships with Britain and the wider world, Irish-British relations, economic development and thought, political ideologies, and in the history of modern Ulster.

About the Programme

The aim of the programme is to produce students who are fully-fledged independent researchers, and students are from the outset given encouragement to disseminate their work at seminars and conferences and by publishing in high-quality locations. The programme culminates in the submission of an 80,000-word dissertation that makes an original contribution to historical knowledge.
