Irish Studies Interdisciplinary Minor

Minor Program

The interdisciplinary Minor in Irish Studies requires fifteen credit hours of courses with full or significant Irish and/or Irish-diaspora content. Twelve hours must derive from upper-division courses - this is, courses at the 3000 lever or above. Three hours may, but do not have to, derive from a lower-division course or courses.

Courses may be selected from the list of courses below. Other courses with significant Irish content may also be applied to the Minor; however, any such course must be approved by the Director of the Center for Irish Research and Teaching, who may be contacted by sending an email to irish@georgiasouthern.edu.

Students are advised to consult the webpage of the Center for Irish Research and Teaching (georgiasouthern.edu/irish) for information about additional, semester-specific courses that have significant Irish content and, thus, have been pre-approved for the Minor. Those courses may be offered either on campus or through a study-in-Ireland program.
