Irish Studies

Irish Studies is an interdisciplinary program that provides students with the opportunity to explore the heritage, culture, history, religion, politics, literature, fine art and film of the people of Ireland and the communities of its Diaspora.  St. Thomas offers an Interdisciplinary Minor in Irish Studies. 
IRSH 3213 - Lines of Vision: Landscape, Art and Irish Writing explores the cultural and artistic value of mythical Ireland and will allow students to better contextualize Ireland through viewing its landscape and creative community through the lens of myth and saga. This study-abroad course will help students learn how environment, landscape and produced images influence not only what is being communicated by a culture, but why it is communicated in that matter.
