Summary

The aim of the PG Diploma in Geography is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and competence necessary to undertake research into and critical analysis of contemporary issues and problems from a human geographical perspective. Students will be exposed to contemporary debates in human geography about pressing global, European and Irish issues, and learn specialist knowledge and competence in areas for which our Human Geographers are internationally recognised for, including cities and society, globalisation, health, politics of place, electoral geographies, cultural/social/historical geography, among other areas. Students will gain training in standard and specialist training in mixed research methods appropriate for geographically-informed research, including fieldwork, qualitative and quantitative research methods, mapping and GIS. Students will also be exposed to working with civil society and government partners, and develop their sense of the ethical and practical demands of such collaborative research.

The programme will be delivered through lecturers, seminars, fieldwork, practicals, other forms of experiential learning (in and out of the classroom) tied to the MA in Geography. A wide selection of modules and flexibility in choice reflects the breadth of the discipline. The PG Diploma is available either part-time or full-time, is flexible in delivery, innovative in emphasis, and stresses experiential- and field-based learning opportunities for students to develop employability competencies.
