Concordia to offer Canada's first BA in Canadian Irish Studies

February 6, 2013

The Quebec government has approved a 42-credit major in Canadian Irish Studies at Concordia University, and as a result the institution will be the first in Canada to offer a BA in Canadian Irish Studies. Concordia notes that while a handful of North American universities offer a degree in Irish studies, it is the only university that closely links the examination of contemporary Ireland with its historical importance to Montreal, Quebec, and Canada. Applications are now being accepted for entrance to the major in the 2013-14 academic year. Concordia News Release
