Curriculum

Each student chooses two courses out of the selections below.  Hospitality, Management, English, and Psychology majors/minors should advise with the program director from your discipline.  We love students from other majors looking for electives or Humanities credits!  

 

ENGL 365:  Introduction to Irish Culture:  Joe Kelly

This special topics course is specially designed for study in Ireland. We’ll take advantage of the sites around Dublin–our living, breathing, bustling, ballad-singing, history-troving, Viking-phile, American-loving, joking, smiling cosmopolitan classroom.

[English majors:  film & cultural studies requirement; English minors:  300-level elective; Irish and Irish American studies:  one elective; general education:  humanities requirement]

 

ENGL 326:  Irish Literature:  Joe Kelly

No one loves their writers like Ireland:  where we erect statues to soldiers and statesmen, Ireland monumentlizes novelist, poets, and playwrights.  We’ll explore the main themes of Irish literature from the Great Famine to the Celtic Tiger, getting a representative taste of the most celebrated writers, like James Joyce, Lady Augusta Gregory, W. B. Yeats, Seamus Heaney, Edna O’Brien, and Roddy Doyle.

[English majors:  post-1900 literature-in-history requirement; English minors:  300-level elective; Irish and Irish American studies:  one elective; general education:  humanities requirement]

HTMT/ARTM 362:  Event Management:  Jeremy Clement

 

MGMT 301:  Management and Organizational Behavior:  Carrie Messal

 

PSYC 315:   Resilience of the Irish: Amy Kolak

 This special topics course will explore themes related to the resilience of the Irish in the face of trauma, including, but not limited to, the Great Famine, violence, and emigration.  Drawing on psychological theories, we will try to understand the individual, family, and cultural factors that may serve to undermine or promote psychological health and well-being.
