The Center for British and Irish Studies encourages students to develop programs that include a focus on British and Irish culture, history, and contemporary life from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. At the undergraduate level, the center offers a certificate in British and Irish studies for students who have taken 24 credit hours in British and Irish literature, history, and/or other fields.
For graduate students, it offers occasional interdisciplinary seminars. These offer exposure to methods and sources outside the students’ own departments and provide preprofessional training in presenting research. The center has funds for acquiring microfilm collections for dissertation research, and offers travel fellowships for graduate students.
