Irish Studies offers an interdisciplinary understanding of the culture and society of Ireland. The Program offers courses in history, literature, drama, music, art, theater, and the Irish language. The minor in Irish Studies requires students to complete six courses drawn from more than one discipline and designated as appropriate by the Irish Studies Program. These courses may not be "double counted" towards both a major and minor. Students should meet with the director of the minor to plan their courses.
Students pursuing the minor are encouraged to take advantage of the 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 Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, the University of Ulster, and Queen's University, Belfast. Those completing the Irish Studies Minor are eligible for the Maeve O'Reilly Finley Fellowship for graduate study in Ireland.
