Immaculata University Continues Irish Studies Courses for Fall 2010

Immaculata University announces that the core requirements for the Irish Studies Minor, namely literature, language and history, will be the focus of the fall 2010 offerings which begin August 30. Elementary Irish Language I (IRL 101) is set for Monday evenings from 7:20 to 9:50 p.m., and Irish Literature (Eng. 349) will be offered at the same time on Thursday evenings. History of Ireland (Hist. 218) is scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1:00 to 2:15 p.m.
The introduction to the Irish Language, taught by native Irish speaker Colette Carew, provides basic reading and speaking tools, as well as cultural information, for the individual who wishes to be in touch with his or her Irish heritage. This course also fulfills the language requirement in the liberal arts core. The course in Irish Literature, as presented by Sister Marie Hubert Kealy, IHM, traces the major themes from Celtic times to the poets, storyteller and playwrights who are writing today. The History of Ireland, led by John Ahtes, offers a consideration of the development of Ireland from pre-colonial times to the emergence of the modern state.
In addition to being pillars of the Irish Studies Minor, both the literature and history courses fulfill requirements in their respective departments and the liberal arts core. Interested persons may register for these courses through the College of LifeLong Learning, 610-647-4400, ext. 3236. Additional information about the courses may be obtained by contacting Sister Marie Hubert Kealy, ext. 3720.
Immaculata University, a Catholic, coeducational institution, is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
