Open to both SHU students and students from other universities, Sacred Heart University offers perhaps the most immersive Irish Studies program anywhere, as students have the unrivaled opportunity to delve into Irish culture in the heart of the Irish-speaking Dingle Gaeltacht region. Students do not merely read about Ireland; they live the Irish experience through hands-on seminars led by accomplished scholars and local experts using Dingle as the campus classroom. All of our courses feature active participation and immersion – both in and out of the classroom. What develops is a profound understanding of Celtic culture and society, historically and in the modern world. The SHU in Dingle experience is offered in short term and semester options.
