Course Summary

Middle Eastern, Jewish and Islamic Civilisations

Judaism and Islam have been deeply influential in the development of European, Middle Eastern, North African and North American societies. Jewish and Islamic Civilisations is the study of their historical origins and cultures, providing students with an insight into the challenges of diversity and multiculturalism in an increasingly globalised world. Trinity is the only university in Ireland that offers a course in Jewish and Islamic civilisations. It attracts students of social and cultural diversity from Ireland and abroad.

History

The History programme combines the strength of a broad-based programme in the first two years, introducing all students to the sheer diversity of historical studies, with the freedom to explore areas of particular interest to individual students in the final two years. The first and second years provide a range of modules covering medieval and modern periods, including Irish, European, and American history, as well as some modules exploring the skills and methods which historians use, and the kinds of debates in which historians engage. Teaching is not only in lectures but in small group tutorials. All students will have an opportunity to undertake a group project in their second year, undertaking research as a team. The third and fourth years offer a wide range of choice in more specialist modules, all taught by staff with expertise in that field. There is the opportunity to concentrate on those parts of history which interest you most, and above all in the final year dissertation, an independent research project which very many students find the most rewarding part of their whole degree programme.
