What will I learn?

The School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences offers a variety of research degrees leading to the award of a Master's degree (M.Litt. or M.Sc., depending on the subject area). Our School has a reputation for international excellence in terms of our research supervision. We currently have some 50 students registered for M.Litt./Ph.D. degrees across a broad range of research areas.

The M.Litt. degree generally takes between 1-2 years of full-time research.

Students commencing the M.Litt. programme must complete a 10 ECTS taught module from a menu of choices in our School and elsewhere in the university. These modules run in the first and second terms each year, and full-time research postgraduates students are expected to complete at least one module within the first 18 months of registration. Students should discuss their choice of module with their research supervisor, and email the Director of Postgraduate Teaching and Learning in order to confirm availability and register.

Normally, graduate students should be resident in or near Dublin. In exceptional circumstances the Dean of Graduate Studies, after consultation with the graduate student’s supervisor and Director of Postgraduate Teaching and Learning, may permit a graduate student to undertake a significant portion of the work for their degree outside Dublin. A ‘Remote Supervision’ policy is in place to address this: Permission for such remote supervision is only granted by the university on an exceptional basis and for academic reasons which would require a student to spend time away from the university for data collection purposes. This also involves a local, co-supervision arrangement in place when away from the university, which must be fully approved and agreed in advance.
