Irish Studies (2020 - 2022)
Four 4-point courses (16 points) completed with a grade of C or better (courses graded Pass/Fail do not count). Courses must be chosen from at least two disciplines; one course in the Irish language may count toward the minor; one independent study course may count, with prior approval of the director of undergraduate studies; and two courses from the NYU in Dublin program may also be counted. Graduate courses require the permission of the director of graduate studies. Students declare the minor by turning in the declaration form to the director of undergraduate studies. Note that the minor must consist exclusively of content courses (i.e., must not contain a course in Irish language) in order to satisfy the Expressive Culture component of the College Core Curriculum.
Arts and Science Summer in Dublin
NYU in Dublin offers students the opportunity to live and study in a capital city that combines the modernity of a thriving European city with a rich heritage spanning more than a millennium. The program and student housing are centered at Trinity College, Ireland's oldest university. This program is an intensive study of modern Irish society and culture with particular emphasis on history, literature, creative writing, and the Irish language. Students examine the experiences and problems that have played a pivotal role in the 20th century and beyond, including the contemporary cultural renaissance, the Celtic Tiger economy, and the revival of the native language. A series of field trips, including weekend excursions to the west of Ireland, complement the academic course of study.
NYU undergraduates with a 3.5 GPA may apply, in their junior year, to be accepted as B.A./M.A. candidates in the Irish and Irish American studies M.A. program. This allows students to complete both a B.A. in an undergraduate major in the College of Arts and Science and the M.A. degree in five years. A tuition discount may apply. If accepted, B.A./M.A. candidates will take a graduate course, Irish Studies Seminar I, in the fall semester of their senior year. Application to the M.A. is made via the College of Arts and Science Advising Center (Silver Center, Room 905; 212-998-8130). Students with questions about the B.A./M.A. degree in Irish studies should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
