SPONSORED: Unique, innovative new postgraduate programmes in Irish Regional History launched at Carlow College, St Patrick’s

Carlow College, St. Patrick’s has recently launched two new Level 9 postgraduate programmes: a Master of Arts and a Postgraduate Diploma in Irish Regional History.

These are 18 – 24 month part-time, evening programmes, which begin in September 2021 and are aimed at graduates seeking to further their study at a more advanced level or accelerate their careers within key sectors.

The programmes are open to applicants who already have a level 8 degree with a minimum second-class honours grade 2 or its equivalent and those who hold a degree at level 7 with evidence of relevant career practice for a minimum period of three years.


The highly practical programmes will enable students to acquire new skills and gain advanced knowledge on historical themes, cultural heritage and oral history. The course content offers a challenging and rewarding subject range that will encourage new research.

Academics from within Carlow College’s History department span a huge array of historical backgrounds from Irish and European to Medieval History, ensuring students on the programmes can expect wide ranging disciplinary, interactive and participatory teaching styles.

Upon completion of the programme(s) the degrees are awarded by the Institute of Technology Carlow and students will also have access to library facilities at the Institute.

Speaking about the new programmes, Dr Elaine Callinan, lecturer in Modern Irish History, stated: “These new degrees in Irish Regional History will fill a void in the education sector, particularly in the south-east region. The aim is to provide a range of taught modules alongside independent research and apply the skills learned to major historical themes.

“Students will also learn about specific historical periods in seminars provided by lecturers with research expertise in these fields.  Students will be fully equipped and possess quality historical knowledge that can be applied to produce a project or thesis with original research.  The programmes will enable graduates to subsequently pursue a range of professional pathways.” 

According to Helen Maher, Vice President of Carlow College: “The validation of these postgraduate programmes is a welcome development under the auspices of the Memorandum of Agreement established with the Institute of Technology Carlow in 2019. The ongoing collaboration provides added benefit for higher education students.”

Carlow College will hold a virtual information session on Tuesday 23rd March at 7pm, for prospective students wishing to find out more about the programmes. This online session is designed with a focus on module content, assignments and major projects.

Fees are €2,240 per year. Applications for the MA and PGDip in Irish Regional History are now open. For more information visit Carlow College’s website here.

  1. I was broken, rejected and almost lost all hope due to my 13 years of HIV infection. So I read about the doctor WHITE on a blog and wrote to him on Whatsapp Via: +2349O91844595 and Email: drwhitethehivhealer@gmail.com, after hearing my story he sent me herbal remedies that cured me of HIV / AIDS. My doctor is still puzzled by the results of the laboratory investigations because I tested negative 4 times after using the drugs. I lost all shame because I am now free and my husband took me back. I testify that you will be cured of hepatitis, cancer, herpes or diabetes and others if you use his medicines. Don’t be a victim, but be victorious.

  4. FINALLY FREE FROM HERPES VIRUS..I thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because life became meaningless to me because I had Herpes virus, the symptoms became very severe and bold and made my family run from me and abandon me so they won’t get infected. I gave up everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because the doctor told me there’s no cure. I consumed so many drugs but they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me making it worse. I was doing some research online someday when I came across testimonies of some people of how DR Ede cured them from Herpes, I never believed at first and thought it was a joke but later decided to contact him on the details provided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent me his herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after two weeks. Within 7 days of medication the symptoms disappeared and when I went for a test behold I was NEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you DR Ede because I forever owe you my life and I’ll keep on telling the world about you. If you are going through the same situation, worry no more and contact DR Ede via his WhatsApp + 2 3 4 7 0 6 4 2 9 0 5 4 6 He is good too to cure all types of disease and virus. 1 HIV cure 2 cancer 3 diabetes 4 hepatitis 5 herpes. You can contact him if you are having any problems…
