Irish School of Ecumenics: M. Phil. in Reconciliation Studies

The M. Phil. in Reconciliation Studies is a taught Master's course offered at the Irish School of Ecumenics (Trinity College Dublin) in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Students benefit from the opportunity to live and study in a society transitioning from decades of conflict, and to engage with advanced scholarship about the roots of ethnic, religious, and political conflict and how such conflicts are transformed.

Teaching takes place in Belfast from late September to early April, followed by an optional spring school in Dublin which focuses on dealing with the past in South Africa and Northern Ireland and includes a visit to Glencree Centre of Reconciliation. Following this, students work on a dissertation to be submitted in September, and can opt to live in Belfast or Dublin.

M. Litt. And Ph.D. research degrees are also available in: inter-religious ethics and globalization; religious worlds and the politics of difference; peace building and reconciliation; and Northern Ireland.

The closing date for the M. Phil. is June 26, 2009. Applications will be considered after this if places are available. The research program intake is April or October. Contact with questions.
