The Irish Studies Program is an interdisciplinary field of study,
offering an undergraduate minor to students interested in studying Ireland along with the worldwide Irish Diaspora and the contemporary
integration of Ireland within globalized systems of political economy,
international relations, travel and communication.
The Irish Studies Minor familiarizes students with a wide range of
courses that explore Ireland and develop critical perspectives on its
place in history and the contemporary world. Our faculty provides an
interdisciplinary approach on a wide range of Irish topics from various
fields of inquiry including History, Geography, Digital Media, Religious
Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, Environmental Science, and English. Several study abroad programs offer courses that fulfill requirements
towards the Minor as well. It takes six courses to meet the requirements for the Irish Studies Minor.
