New York University announces its new Master of Arts degree program in Irish and Irish-American studies, beginning in September of 2007. The program will provide an interdisciplinary look at the Irish at home and abroad, with courses in history, literature, music, and cultural studies, with distinguished faculty. The course of study will take three semesters.
This is NYU's first major in Irish Studies; previously, they offered the discipline as a minor on the undergraduate level. There is no doctorate in Irish Studies; students seeking a Ph.D. on a topic related to Ireland must apply to a department that grants the Ph.D. degree, such as History, English, or American Studies.
We at WGT congratualate the faculty and staff of Ireland House at NYU for their accomplishment and wish them go n'éirí an t-ádh leat.
