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

Students will receive $70 discount if they register for more than one class

Chicago (March 17, 2009) 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 for Continuing and Professional Studies.  Registration for a single class is $185, or $300 for registration of two classes – a discount of $70. 

Classes begin in September and will include “Irish Women’s Writers: Contemporary Short Stories by Women by Ireland,” “Ireland Since WW II,” and “Bill Clinton, Irish Soccer & Riverdance:  Ireland’s Coming of Age and the People and Events That Made it Happen,” “Gaelic Language,” and “Ireland’s Culture.”
