What is Irish Studies/How can my home University assess the courses for credit?
Irish Studies is one of the most established subject areas within the field of 'Area Studies'. Similar courses include American Studies. Such courses are interdisciplinary and thus provide you with a range of skills that another more familiar course might not. The Irish Studies pre-semester programmes are interdisciplinary and may cover subjects in the field of Irish Studies such as history, anthropology, literature, politics, film, theatre and drama.
When your work is graded you will be given a percentage mark. The table showing grade conversion into US letter grade can be seen here.
The programmes involve at least 36 hours contact time.
