MA Political Theory University College Dublin

Some places remain in the MA in Political Theory for 2012-13 in University College Dublin. This long-established degree has recently been redesigned to allow students to draw more widely on the range of resources available in UCD’s Schools of Politics, Philosophy and Social Justice.

The focus of the course is on some of the key normative concerns that arise when we reflect on contemporary politics. Core modules include International Political Theory, Theories of Human Rights, and Debates on Citizenship.  Other modules include Poverty, Development and Global Justice, The Good Society, Theories of Equality, and Autonomy, as well as a range of other options.  Students take a combination of core and optional modules, and a research design half- module, which prepares them to write a 10,000 word thesis during the summer, under the supervision of one of the members of staff. The degree can be taken full-time in 1 year, or part-time over 2 years.

You can see the full programme for 2012-13 here:  Politics staff teaching on the programme include Graham Finlay (Human Rights, Poverty, Development and Global Justice), Kieran Oberman (International Political Theory), and Iseult Honohan (Contemporary Debates on Citizenship), –  the co-ordinator of the programme – who can be emailed for further information.
