SXU offers non-credit Irish Studies at Chicago and Orland Park Campuses

Students will receive $30 discount if they register for more than one class

Chicago (Aug. 25, 2008) Registration has started for Saint Xavier University’s highly successful non-credit Irish Studies certificate program this fall at the Chicago and Orland Park campuses.

Students explore Ireland’s heritage through an interdisciplinary program of history, the Gaelic language, literature, art, film and music.

Saint Xavier, which traces its roots to the Sisters of Mercy in Dublin, Ireland, offers the program at both campuses through the School of Continuing and Professional Studies. Registration for a single class is $185, and students will receive a $30 discount if registering for more than one class per semester. 

Classes begin in October and will include “Irish Women Writers: Contemporary Short Stories by Women from Ireland,” “Daring Irish Drama: The Plays of John Millington Synge,” “Irish History” and “Ireland Since WWII.”
