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, historical 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.
