Welcome to the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies at Trinity College Dublin, placed 42nd in the world and 10th in Europe by the 2014 QS University Rankings by Subject.
Trinity College College has the world's oldest tradition of modern language studies, with chairs dating back to 1776. Today the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies combines the strengths of this tradition in a group of established Departments which between them teach almost a dozen languages at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Students take languages with Trinity's distinctive two-subject degree, or in single-honor courses such as Early & Modern Irish, Irish Studies or the European Studies degree run through the Centre for European Studies. Students may also combine the study of a language with Law, Business Studies or Computer Science and Linguistics. A cluster of innovative taught postgraduate degrees offers a broad range of possibilities, leading to research or to professional practice in areas of language, literature and cultural life. The School's research in literary, language and cultural studies ranges from the medieval to the very contemporary.
The Head of School is Professor Juergen Barkhoff and the School is part of the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. For news and contact details, please see below.
