Celtic Studies Minor

Study Across Disciplines

With an interdisciplinary minor in Celtic Studies, you will study the broad geographical, linguistic, and cultural histories of the Irish, Scottish and Welsh peoples to understand Celtic identity, experience, and expression.

Pursue Rich Celtic Traditions

European political boundaries have obscured Celtic culture in modern times – yet its impact has been pervasive and deep, retained in pockets of local and regional culture.  The Irish, Scottish, and Welsh languages each claim a major literature dating back to the Middle Ages, and current programs in living and “dead” Celtic languages (Irish, Scots, Welsh, Cornish, Breton, and Manx) and literatures are reviving those cultural traditions once stifled by colonialism.

You can enhance any major by studying this important culture at the crossroads of society. Better yet, why not study abroad in Ireland, Scotland or Wales to experience the vibrancy of Celtic culture first-hand?

We Help You Succeed

At Truman, you benefit from the small classes and personal attention only available at a small undergraduate institution. You’ll enjoy research opportunities that are more difficult to come by at a larger institution. Your classes are taught by professors – not graduate students – and our 16:1 faculty-to-student ratio insures you’ll receive the personal attention you need when you need it.

Discover New Connections

At Truman, we know that all fields of study are connected in complicated and fascinating ways. Celtic Studies is one of fifteen interdisciplinary studies programs available for you to explore the new possibilities that open up when two or more fields overlap. Our interdisciplinary studies major even allows you to custom-design your own field of study.
