Roinn Theanga agus Litríocht na Gaeilge
Is í Roinn Theanga agus Litríocht na Gaeilge an chéad roinn dá cineál i dTuaisceart Mheiriceá, a thugann deis do mhic léinn an Ghaeilge a fhoghlaim agus eolas a chur ar litríocht agus ar chultúr na Gaeilge.
The first of its kind in North America, Notre Dame’s Department of Irish Language and Literature gives students the opportunity to learn the Irish language, and to engage with its literature and culture, among the oldest attested in Europe.
Our world-class faculty teaches students Irish, the indigenous language of Ireland and the voice of the oldest vernacular literature in Europe, which allows them to engage Irish culture in its native language. Learning with these scholars, both within and beyond the classroom, gives students a unique knowledge of Irish culture and traditions. The time they spend studying the Irish language not only furthers this knowledge but also enhances their ability to study abroad in Ireland in Notre Dame's Dublin Program and in various summer programs in Donegal, Galway, and Kerry.
Our students leave Notre Dame having received an education that enriches their understanding of the humanities and world culture that translates to any number of careers.
