MA Fellowships, 2013-14
Centre for Irish Studies, NUI Galway

A chara,

We are delighted to announce the new NUI Galway MA Scholarship scheme for the academic year 2013-14. Students who have been accepted on to the full-time taught MA in Irish Studies programme, and that hold a First Class Honours undergraduate degree, will be awarded a scholarship worth €1,500. Further details concerning this new scholarship scheme will be made available at:

In addition, the Tadhg Foley MA in Irish Studies Fellowship will be awarded to the outstanding applicant at point of entry to the MA in Irish Studies programme 2013-14. The Tadhg Foley MA Fellowship recognises the extraordinary contribution made by Professor Emeritus Tadhg Foley to the Centre’s activities as Chair of the Board of the Centre for Irish Studies during the period 2003-2009.

Professor Foley’s intellectual generosity and commitment to interdisciplinary studies has provided a model for advanced teaching and research in Irish Studies at NUI Galway. We would greatly appreciate if you could inform those interested in your department of this exciting new opportunity for MA postgraduate study at the Centre for Irish Studies.

The MA in Irish Studies at NUI Galway is a one-year integrated, interdisciplinary programme drawing on the disciplines of Irish, History and English, and including perspectives from Sociology and Political Science. The course provides a comprehensive overview of the Irish experience from the early nineteenth century to the present day. A key element of the MA programme is an Irish-language module, which aims to ensure that all students achieve a minimum working knowledge of the language, with a particular focus on reading and translation skills. Individual course modules and supervision are taught and offered by internationally recognised experts at NUI Galway. The MA is available as a full-time programme over one academic year, and as a part-time course of study to be completed over two years.
Further information on the MA in Irish Studies programme is available at:

We have also attached above our new brochure, celebrating ten years of advanced teaching, research and civic engagement activities associated with the Centre for Irish Studies, NUI Galway, since its inception in 2000.
