The modules start in week one of the autumn semester in September 2014 and the classes are between 6.30 and 9.30 on Wed evenings - there are three modules in semester one from weeks 1-4, 5-8, 9 to 12. The second year of the programme is devoted to the dissertation when the student works with the supervisor and attends three workshops in each semester when the class and all supervisors meet.
The programme is part time so the fee is €2,800 for each of the two years. The fee can be paid in instalments, there is also some tax relief available on it (information available on the Revenue Commissioners website: http://www.revenue.ie/en/tax/it/leaflets/it31.html) and the Dept of History, UL, can provide some assistance.
