The Minor in Celtic Studies allows you to explore the full range of subjects associated with this discipline, starting with modern Celtic languages (Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh and Breton). The program also includes courses devoted to the rich cultures of the Celtic world, from Antiquity to the present, in which you will have the opportunity to study a whole range of themes from early history to contemporary events, such as the story of King Arthur, the music of the Celtic peoples, or the various Celtic groups in Western Europe and the Americas. Through this multidisciplinary approach, you will gain a thorough understanding of the important Celtic roots of Britain, Ireland, France, and parts of Central Europe as well as the vitality of Celtic cultures wherever Celtic peoples have settled or lived, including Canada.
