The interdisciplinary Masters programme will offer an advanced insight into many aspects of modern Ireland. Offered on a part-time basis over two years, it will be taught by experts in Irish history, politics, culture, literature and drama, as well as the processes of peace-building in Northern Ireland.
The University of Liverpool’s London Campus provides unique opportunities for students to participate in cultural events in London, as well as build on the University’s existing links with London-based employers, professional institutes and policy makers.

The same team of internationally acclaimed academics will deliver the degree, as well as short professional courses in both Liverpool and London, immediately increasing student choice and experience.”

“It will help to increase knowledge and awareness of Irish history, politics and culture and, in the broader context, will contribute to shared understandings and ever-stronger relations between Ireland and Britain.’
BBC Correspondent, Fergal Keane, and Tony Blair’s former chief of staff, Jonathan Powell, who are both Visiting Professors at the Institute of Irish Studies will contribute to the London programme. This will provide a unique opportunity to learn from those who not only report on war and peace but have contributed to the Northern Irish peace process.
