Postgraduate Taught Programmes
The Irish School of Ecumenics is committed to the study and promotion of dialogue, peace and reconciliation in Ireland and other global contexts. ISE is recognised for its vigorous interdisciplinary approach to teaching, research and social engagement. The M.Phil. courses in Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies; in International Peace Studies; and the Postgraduate Diploma in Conflict and Dispute Resolution Studies, are based in Dublin, while the M.Phil. course in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation is based in Belfast. Individual modules address the intersecting fields of theology, ecumenics and world religions, politics, international relations, peace and reconciliation, ethics and social theory. Theoretical and applied research are at the heart of all work undertaken at ISE, where students and staff engage with critical issues currently facing global societies, governments, faith communities and international institutions and NGOs committed to the promotion of peace and reconciliation. Students taking research degrees (M.Litt. or Ph.D.) can choose to do their research in either Dublin or Belfast. For further information about individual courses see below.
