About Gaeilge/Irish - Arts at University College Cork

Overview

As well as acquiring the oral and written skills essential to any language degree, students who choose Gaeilge/Irish as part of their Arts programme will enjoy unique cultural enrichment. You will develop informed opinions on Irish life and civilisation through an acquaintance with the various sources of information on our heritage and a familiarity with Irish literature from early times to the present.

The Departments of Irish are uniquely positioned to provide an insight into the ancestral language, literature and culture of Ireland. For the students it can be a genuinely satisfying encounter: there is the sense of working in an original way with material that closely concerns themselves.

Course Details

Cúrsai Staidéir
Tá idir theanga agus litríocht i gceist i gcúrsaí na Gaeilge. Is í an Ghaeilge féin an meán teagaisc. Bíonn ranganna beaga ar siúl ina ndírítear ar scríobh na teanga. Déantar cúram ar leith den teanga labhartha sa Saotharlann Teanga agus sna ranganna comhrá. Cothaítear scileanna léitheoireachta agus léirmheasóireachta sna cúrsaí litríochta. Scrúdaítear gnéithe éagsúla de stair chultúrtha na hÉireann.

Déantar staidéar ar theanga agus ar litríocht na Gaeilge ó thosach aimsire anuas go dtí an lá inniu. Cuireann an dá Roinn na cúrsaí céime ar fáil i bpáirt lena chéile: Roinn na Nua-Ghaeilge agus Roinnna Sean- agus na Meán-Ghaeilge.
