The DCU MSc in Health and Social inclusion programme is delivered part-time over two years across four semesters. The course is offered in a blended format to facilitate work life balance. Typically, students attend classes on DCU Glasnevin Campus on two days per month combined with online learning. This unique, interdisciplinary programme aims to develop expertise in tacking health disparities and social exclusion through leadership, practice development and research.
The programme is free to eligible post-primary teachers and is fully funded by the Department of Education and Skills as part of the national strategy to support the implementation of STEM education and improve standards in physics education in post-primary schools by increasing the numbers of qualified teachers of physics.
The aim of the MSc in Elite Sport Performance is to provide an opportunity for postgraduate study to appropriately qualified early-career sport professionals across relevant sport performance disciplines (e.g., sport science and coaching) and to acquire advanced subject knowledge in this field. We will offer candidates the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary study that allows them to investigate issues in elite sport performance.
The programme is delivered via a hybrid approach with predominant face-to-face teaching and some online delivery of modules, together with hands-on experience in a research laboratory.
This course has been designed to:
The aims of the programme are:
- To open up advanced career opportunities for graduates of traditional mathematics courses
- To give specialists in other numerate disciplines (e.g. engineers, scientists or economists) the opportunity to deepen their understanding of mathematics and to master powerful modern mathematical techniques
To achieve these aims it is intended:
The course involves three main strands: Astrophysics, Relativity, and Computational Science and Data Analysis. All topics are covered in the first semester of the course, laying the foundations for the advanced study of these topics in the second semester.
This course is a one-year, intensive, full-time MSc, which has been fully accredited by the Psychological Society of Ireland. Classes are timetabled for between 20-30 hours per week each semester. This course covers the key mandatory areas of psychology including:
