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.
