Interdivisional Concentrations

Irish and Celtic Studies


The Irish and Celtic Studies (ICS) concentration offers access to three main areas: Celtic traditions in myth, religion, literature, and art; Anglo-Irish literature from the 18th through the 20th centuries; and the politics and history of Ireland.


Students moderate into a disciplinary program (e.g., art history, historical studies) and are responsible for the requirements of that program. Two members of the Moderation board should be Irish studies faculty. Students are advised to take two ICS crosslisted courses before Moderation, such as Literature 2650, Irish Fiction, or Anthropology 269, Ireland and the Anthropological Imagination. Graduation requirements include two cross-listed courses and successful completion of the Senior Project.
