Featured NYU International House: Glucksman Ireland House

main_2.jpg

We'd like to start featuring some of the wonderful International Houses at New York University which provide access to a wide array of cultures and events. Today we take a look at the Glucksman Ireland House, the center for Irish and Irish-American Studies at New York University. With courses in history, Irish language, literature, music, and politics, NYU undergraduates may pursue a minor or a B.A./M.A. in Irish and Irish-American Studies. Graduate students may earn a Masters in Irish and Irish-American Studies

For the New York community, Glucksman Ireland House presents a weekly public events series during the academic year, as well as a monthly traditional Irish music series. For the non-credit adult learner, they even host evening Irish language classes.
