An immersive way to learn the language and culture...

Students on the programme will study Modern Irish language (grammar, pronunciation, writing) and Modern literature, as well as optional modules (depending on combination) in the development of the language since the Gaelic Revival, Irish Cultural Studies, Folklore, Irish Dialects and Translation. The literature modules will give you a solid understanding of writing in Irish from the early 20th century to the modern day, including the novel, short story, drama and verse, and the language modules will help you to achieve a high level of competence in written and spoken Irish.
