Chicago (Jan. 22, 2008) Registration has started for Saint Xavier University’s highly successful non-credit Irish Studies certificate program this spring at the Orland Park campus.

Registration for a single class is $165, and students will receive a $30 discount if registering for more than one class per semester. 

Classes begin in March and will include “Gaelic Language II,” “Irish Women Writers: Contemporary Short Stories by Women from Ireland,” “Modern Irish History 1950-Present” and “Researching Your Irish Roots: It Can Be Done!”
