Irish Studies

LMU’s minor in Irish Studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to complement a variety of majors by providing students with an understanding of the historical and cultural development of the Irish people and the significance of their intellectual, artistic, spiritual, and economic contribution to world civilization, including their experiences as both a postcolonial nation and an emigrant diaspora. The minor requires 20 semester hours, including at least one course in Irish literature and one in Irish history. At least 10 semester hours must be in upper division courses and an average grade of C (2.0) must be maintained.
