Graduate Profile
Shannon Lewis, Canada,
Graduate
I chose to pursue my graduate education at UCD because it is one of the top universities in Ireland. Naturally, as a prospective history student I was drawn to Ireland because of the rich culture and long-standing history it has to offer. The MA in Medieval Studies offers modules in a wide variety of subjects within the confines of the medieval period, and as an interdisciplinary programme also allows students to branch out of the history department, giving me a truly unique and well-rounded learning experience. UCD is a modern university with hi-tech facilities and outstanding resources, yet the campus can only be described as a spacious green oasis hidden away from the hustle and bustle of city life, which I especially liked. The friendly and engaging university atmosphere makes it easy to feel part of the school community. It is a University that truly cares about its students and wants them to get the most out of their degree.
