If you would like to be part of an innovative and creative learning environment, with excellent student supports and resources, apply now for world-class MIC Postgraduate programmes in the Liberal Arts and Education offered at Diploma, Masters and Doctoral (PhD) levels.

Programmes include specialised MA programmes in European Thought and Culture, Media Studies, History, Education and the Arts and Music Education.  These established programmes are offered alongside new doctoral programmes in areas as diverse as Applied Linguistics and Development Education and Practice and a new MA in STEM Education. Full-time, part-time and distance learning options are available across both taught and research programmes.

According to Professor Jim Deegan, Head of Graduate School at MIC: “Grounded in decades of scholarship in Education and the Liberal Arts, postgraduate students at MIC experience responsive research supervision and mentoring, funding and career development support schemes, and a first-class “community of practice” in the new purpose-designed graduate research and study facility on the John Henry Newman Campus at MIC.”






In order to help meet the real world needs and costs of postgraduate research MIC also offers funding supports of €800,000 per annum through a Departmental Assistantships Scheme and merit-based Research Masters and Doctoral Awards Scheme.

MIC systematically builds for student success by providing panel-based monitoring at the review and progression points and a wide range of transferable skills training such as academic writing, project management, research integrity and ethical conduct, distributed leadership, and presentation and conference skills.  Students also enjoy innovative masterclasses and summer schools. The MIC Postgraduate community continues to grow and diversifies with students from Ireland, the UK and EU studying alongside students from Brazil, Nigeria, Tanzania, France, Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia, Japan, and China.
