The programme is aimed at preparing students for academic positions as well as positions in international organisations and governments. 


UCD offers a vibrant research environment. Together with the Geary Institute for Public Policy and the UCD Behavioral Science Center, the School runs multiple weekly seminar series and regularly organizes workshops.
