University College Cork's Certificate in Irish Studies is an undergraduate interdisciplinary programme for visiting international students drawing on a number of academic disciplines which aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the whole range of the rich indigenous Irish cultural tradition over two millennia. The modules selected for inclusion here are those which reflect the earlier cultures – of Ireland in particular, but with reference to Scotland and Wales as well. The contributing departments are Early and Medieval Irish, Modern Irish, Archaeology, History and Folklore. For students interested specifically in the Irish language a weekend in an Irish–speaking area (Gaeltacht) is arranged (through the Centre for Spoken Irish) at Dún Chíomháin, the university’s Gaeltacht site in beautiful west Kerry.
