Ireland’s rich culture reveals legend and folklore, ancient tradition, storied military engagements and dynamic political campaigns. Franklin Pierce University’s Certificate in Global Irish Studies invites students to explore a land where centuries of colonizers reformed native Celtic foundations within a turbulent historical progression. The mission of the Certificate is to develop students’ knowledge of Irish history literature, politics, music, and arts, and provide an opportunity to study the worldwide impact of the ethnic diaspora. Explore Ireland’s place in the world, expand your own pathways into higher education and productive career opportunities, and find meaning in a historical tradition as compelling as it is enduring.
To earn the Global Irish Studies Certificate, you must successfully complete a 12-credit course of study, including introductory, elective, and field-based curricular offerings.
