Undergraduate Programs

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.

The small classes taught by dedicated professors help develop critical thinking and communication skills in both English and Irish while allowing students to engage deeply in a variety of topics relating to Ireland.

Empowerment through culture

Learning Irish empowers students to experience and interact with Irish culture in its native language. Learning with renowned scholars, both within and beyond the classroom, gives students a unique knowledge of Irish culture and traditions.

Each year students take advantage of partially and fully funded study abroadresearch, and internship opportunities in Ireland. 

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.


We offer a minor in Irish language and literature and a minor in Irish studies
