The Irish Studies Program office is located in the Saint Augustine Center Room 455. The phone number is 610.519.4647. (Directions to campus).
The Irish Studies concentration allows the student to see the art, literature, and history of modern Ireland from this perspective of the continuum of culture. It also allows the student the opportunity to learn the Irish language, both on campus through our Irish language courses and abroad in the Gaeltacht regions of Ireland.
Study options are available at major Irish universities on a semester or year long basis. In addition, students may take part in a six-credit Villanova-in-Ireland summer program at University College Galway. The program also offers the Abbey Theatre Internship and the opportunity to study the Irish language over the summer in Gaeltacht regions in Ireland. Studiyng under the Heimbold Chair and learning the Irish history of Philadelphia are other excellent opportunities offered through the Irish studies concentration.
