The Center for Irish Cultural Studies promotes the study, understanding, and appreciation of Irish and Celtic culture, history, and language through a variety of academic programs, public lectures, music concerts and other performing arts programs, and study abroad at the SHU campus in Dingle, County Kerry, Ireland.
The minor in Irish Studies at Sacred Heart University is designed to offer students an opportunity for an in-depth study in one of the most multi-disciplinary studies available in undergraduate programs, including Irish and Celtic culture, history, language, literature, music, politics, religion and society. A distinctive feature of the program is study at SHU’s campus in Dingle, County Kerry, Ireland, and an emphasis on patterns of socio-cultural and political change in contemporary Ireland and the place of Ireland in the modern world.
