School of Humanities

 

The School of Humanities, (Scoil na nDaonnachtaí) which was established in 2007, brings together the Departments of English, History, and Philosophy, the Centre for Irish Studies, the Huston School of Film and Digital Media, and specialist fields in Journalism and Old and Middle Irish.

The School of Humanities is the largest of the five schools which constitute the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Celtic Studies. It has 60 full-time teaching and research staff, over 3,000 postgraduate and undergraduate students, including some 700 from overseas, and every year it is host also to various visiting scholars and creative writers and artists. Our School's community is a vibrant one, thriving on intellectual exchange within and between traditional subject areas and newer fields of enquiry and practice.

Broadly speaking, the common concern in the School of Humanities is human experience. From different perspectives, we address ourselves to humankind's diverse history, traditions and creativeness. Our methods and interests vary a great deal, but the environment in which we work is one of co-operation and mutual respect.
