Irish Studies Minor

Irish Studies minor
The minor in Irish Studies requires students to complete (18) credits from more than one discipline and designated as appropriate by the Irish Studies program. Courses may not be “double counted” towards both a major and a minor.

Students should contact Irish Studies at 617-552-6396 to arrange a meeting for assistance with course planning. Seniors who have successfully completed the Irish Studies minor are eligible to apply for the Maeve O’Reilly Finley Fellowship for graduate study in Ireland. A listing of Irish Studies-approved courses may be found on our website.

If you are interested in pursuing the Irish Studies minor, please email your name, BC username, and Eagle ID number to so that we may arrange an advising session. The minor will be reflected on your degree audit immediately, but that appearance does not imply any future obligation. There is no penalty to those who do not complete the minor, it will simply be removed from your record prior to graduation. In the spring of your senior year, the program administrator will contact you to review your completed courses and will confirm your Irish Studies Minor with the Office of Student Services.

Study Abroad
Students pursuing the Irish Studies minor are encouraged to take advantage of partnership programs that the Irish Studies Program and the Center for International Partnerships and Programs have developed with the National Universities of Ireland at Galway and Maynooth, University College Cork, University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, the University of Ulster, and Queen’s University Belfast.
