The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures offers a minor in Celtic Studies. This multidisciplinary program allows students to explore a full range of subjects associated with the discipline, starting with the modern Celtic languages (Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh and Breton).
The program also includes courses devoted to the rich cultures of the Celtic world during antiquity in Continental Europe, and during the early Middle Ages in Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The study of today’s Celtic nations in Western Europe and the Americas is also an integral part of the program.
What’s more, by definition, this field brings many disciplines together, including linguistics, archaeology, classical studies and medieval studies, as well as ancestral languages, sociolinguistics and dialectology. On the strength of such a multidisciplinary approach, students gain a thorough understanding of the importance of the Celtic roots of Britain, Ireland, France and parts of Central Europe, and of the vitality of Celtic cultures wherever Celtic people have settled or lived, from ancient times into the 21st century.
A minor may be taken as the second program of an honours bachelor with major and minor, an honours bachelor with specialization and minor, or an honours bachelor’s (multidisciplinary) offered by the faculties of Arts, Engineering, Science, Social Sciences and Health Sciences. It may also be taken as a first program in a three-year General Bachelor of Arts with Minor.
