Welcome to the Oscar Wilde Centre for Irish Writing, School of English, Trinity College. On this site you will find information about the Centre and about the two Master's degree courses which are housed here.
M.Phil in Irish Writing
The M.Phil. in Irish Writing has been running since 1987, and regularly attracts students from all over the world. Combining survey courses with more specialised options, drawn from the particular research interests of the lecturers who contribute to the course, the programme allows students to gain a thorough understanding of Irish literature in its native context.
M.Phil in Creative Writing
The M.Phil. in Creative Writing is now in its seventeenth year, and continues to be extremely successful. Focusing on the practical business of writing, rewriting and editing, the programme also includes an introduction to the publishing industry, a series of lectures by established writers in a wide range of genres, and the opportunity to take one of the specialised options offered to students on the M.Phil. in Irish Writing.
