Media Studies is an extremely interdisciplinary subject, and we welcome applications from candidates from a variety of other disciplinary backgrounds. Applicants should hold a BA (2:1 or higher) in Media Studies or another cognate discipline from the Humanities or Social Sciences. An MA in Media Studies or another cognate discipline from the Humanities or Social Sciences is strongly preferred. Applicants without an MA will be required to register initially as MLitt students, transferring to the PhD register on approval after a period of study. Applicants must have a recognised primary degree which is considered equivalent to Irish university primary degree level.
