Undergraduate Program Minor in Irish Studies

The Minor in Irish Studies helps students develop their understanding of Irish society, culture and politics through both course work and first hand experience of Ireland. Undergraduate courses offered by the Keough-Naughton Institute provide Notre Dame students with a unique opportunity to explore Ireland’s extraordinary tradition in literature (in both the English and Irish languages) and distinctive historical development, including its influence on the United States.

The minor involves required coursework and completion of the Capstone Essay

Irish Studies courses are open to all undergraduates but a certain number of spaces in each course are reserved for our minors.
