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

Students are advised to consult the webpage of the Center for Irish Research and Teaching ( 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.
