Overview

Bachelor of Arts - Irish Studies

St. Thomas University has had a long-standing spiritual, intellectual and emotional connection with a vital, unique and living Irish cultural tradition. 

Settled by pre-Famine Irish, the province of New Brunswick boasts one of the oldest indigenous Irish populations in North America

Today, St. Thomas University acknowledges the sacrifice and contribution of these early Irish migrants through many of its university programmes; among these are: 

Catholic Studies, Human Rights, Religious Studies, Social Work, Education, English, Criminology, History, Philosophy and Political Science

Most of these programmes highlight the social justice concerns of the Catholic Church and the legacy of Irish priests, nuns and laypeople who historically made up the faculty, administration, student body, and alumni of St. Thomas. 

The Irish Studies Programme seeks to complement the concerns of these programmes while it acknowledging the voices of the Irish who first sought to bring this education to their own displaced people as well as to the citizens of the wider world.

The Irish Studies Programme is an interdisciplinary liberal arts programme

It is designed to provide students with the opportunity to explore the heritage, culture, history, religion, politics, literature, fine art, and film of both the people of Ireland and the communities of its Diaspora.
