Irish and Celtic Studies
Deirdre d’Albertis (coordinator), Gregory B. Moynahan, Joseph O’Neill, Karen Sullivan
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 century; and the politics and history of Ireland.
Students moderate into a disciplinary program (e.g., art history, his-torical studies) and are responsible for that program’s requirements. Two members of the Moderation board should be Irish and Celtic Studies faculty. Students are advised to take two ICS cross-listed courses before Moderation, such as Literature 2175, Medieval Ireland, or History 2551, Joyce’s Ulysses, Modernity, and Nationalism. Graduation requirements include two cross-listed courses and successful completion of the Senior Project.
