The Irish Studies minor is an interdisciplinary academic program focused on Ireland and its place in the world. The purpose of the minor is to give students access to another culture in order to enable them to better understand the role of culture in human society.
The study of Ireland is particularly apposite for a number of reasons:
Students can complete the 6 course Irish Studies Minor by completing one of the following two tracks:
1) For students who complete courses at DePaul University Chicago campus (i.e. do not participate in the Dublin Internship):
2) For students who participate in DePaul’s Parliamentary Internship in Dublin:
The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences offers a study abroad program in Dublin, Ireland, twice each year. It provides an excellent opportunity for students to get to know Ireland at first hand. It is not a compulsory part of the minor in Irish Studies. However, students taking part in the Study Abroad Program in Dublin may gain credit for four courses that count towards completion of the minor. Thus, for students who successfully complete the Dublin Internship, the requirements for the IRE minor are as follows:
For further information on the Dublin Parliamentary Internship courses please contact the Director of the Irish Studies Program.
Courses marked* only count for the Irish Studies minor when focused on a pertinent topic (as in the examples in parentheses in the list of courses above). When a student registers for such a course it will not automatically place as an Irish Studies course in the Degree Progress Report (DPR). The student needs to email the Director of Irish Studies with their name, ID number, and the course(s) at issue to ask for a DPR update.
