Program Overview

In the Minor in Irish Studies program, we also encourage you to take advantage of our affiliations with universities in Ireland, where you can spend a semester abroad and truly immerse yourself in the country. We have unique strengths when it comes to Irish history. Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac sponsors conferences, speaking events and courses that focus on the tragic Irish potato famine of the 1840s. And our Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum is a valuable resource for students interested in exploring art, sculpture and writings pertaining to the Famine. Through this program, you’ll have opportunities to enrich your experience and earn credits through internships both in Ireland and in the U.S.
