The School of History and Geography is currently home to a lively body of research students, all engaged in research towards the PhD degree.

We offer a structured research programme with access to appropriate taught modules alongside expert supervision.

Our staff support students in research projects in History (Irish History, Environmental History, the History of Science and Medicine, Modern European History, Gender and Women's History) and Geography (Irish Urban and Rural Historical Geography, Irish Geomorphology, Irish Water Resources, Earth Observation, GIS, Land Use Change, Peatland Carbon Dynamics and Geopolitics).  Full-time students also have access to workspace and IT facilities.

Please note all graduate research applications are processed online via the Postgraduate Applications Centre (PAC). 

Potential applications are advised to first consult DCU’s Postgraduate Research page and the School.

A limited number of research scholarships are offered annually by the School – information is generally posted in the spring of each year.
