Launched in 2004, Emory’s Irish Studies Program builds on our tremendous strengths in teaching and research in Irish literature, arts and culture. Students work with Emory’s extraordinary collection of Irish literary archives ranging from W.B. Yeats and the Revival to Seamus Heaney and contemporary Irish poetry. The Irish Studies Program is housed within Emory’s English Department and introduces students to leading scholarship on Ireland through courses, seminars, readings and lectures. Interested students may study in Ireland either in Semester or Year Abroad programs in Belfast, Dublin or Galway. At the graduate level, there is also an informal Irish-language reading group.
