Irish Studies

Why Study Irish Studies at Elms College?

Our students have the opportunity to study in Ireland at the Innisfree College and Convention Center at St. Angela's College in Sligo, and at Diseart in Dingle, County Kerry. Students can also work with faculty to arrange alternative study abroad experiences at other Irish colleges. 

In addition to course offerings, you benefit from a close relationship with the Irish Cultural Center (ICC) at Elms College. Since 1999, the ICC and Elms College have brought prominent Irish scholars, politicians, and cultural figures to campus, such as Nobel Laureate Betty Williams, Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams, and arms decommissioning monitors Rev. Alec Reid and Rev. Harold Good.

What Can You Do With an Irish Studies Degree?

Ireland's culture and literature occupy a unique place in western civilization. The interdisciplinary Irish studies minor explores many facets of Ireland in a way that complements our other majors. The minor is useful for students pursuing a career in education, business, or any opportunity that will have them traveling abroad.
