Why make Irish Studies part of your degree at Concordia?

Studying Ireland’s rich history and culture introduces you to complex issues that echo round the world, e.g. colonization, rebellion, civil war, partition, famine, refugees, language and cultural preservation, shifting national identities, etc.

Benefit from a $3,000 annual tuition grant throughout your degree, and be eligible for general scholarships and travel support

Participate in summer field studies in Ireland, academic exchange with Irish Universities, and internships in Montreal and Ireland

Enjoy small classes taught by dedicated professors who will foster critical thinking, analytic skills, and effective oral and written communication

By participating in our multidisciplinary program (rather than focusing on one or two disciplines), you will increase your career options, in fields such as teaching, law, media, arts, business, community affairs, international development, civil service, human resources, etc.

Whether you want to do a major or a minor in Irish Studies, or combine it with one or two other fields of study, we offer many possible options to suit your interests and needs.
