Celtic Studies Minor

Study Across Disciplines

With an interdisciplinary Celtic studies minor, you develop an understanding of Celtic identity, experience, and expression by studying the broad geographical, linguistic, and cultural histories of the Irish, Scottish and Welsh peoples.

Explore 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 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 literature 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? A Celtic Studies Minor complements numerous career fields ranging from education to entertainment to research.

Discover New Connections
