Irish Literature Minor

This minor offers students the opportunity to concentrate on the literature of Ireland while gaining an understanding of its historical, cultural, and literary contexts. Students completing the Irish literature minor must take:

Three literature courses specifically related to Ireland (four recommended)9
One course in literature not related to Ireland3
One approved course from either History or Peace and Global Studies3
Total Credit Hours15

The non-Irish literature course will ground students’ understanding of the wider British canon, while the History or Peace and Global Studies course provides knowledge of the wider European and global contexts that Irish writers navigate. Study abroad and summer language programs are options for the fulfillment of this minor. Students interested in these options should speak to the director of the minor.
