|Undergraduate Program: Minor in Irish Studies|
The Irish Studies Program encompasses a broad array of courses from which students may select to complete the undergraduate Irish Studies minor.
Academically, the Center for Irish Studies serves as a focal point for the study of Irish history, politics, law and culture, theology, literature, film, art, music, the Irish language, the Irish American Experience, Contemporary Ireland and the Northern Ireland Peace Process. These courses are available for credit and most are available for audit by the community at large.
Irish language: Through a generous grant from the Irish Government Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, we offer scholarships for Irish I and Irish II and free books for all Irish language students.
