Affiliated Programs

Faculty from the Department of English teach courses in several affiliated programs. Many of the courses in these interdisciplinary programs also satisfy requirements for undergraduate and graduate degrees in English.

  • Medieval and Byzantine Studies Program: An interdisciplinary program emphasizing the complex intertwining of theology, philosophy, Latin and vernacular languages, and history.
  • Irish Studies Program: From its founding in 1887, the Catholic University of America has cultivated a unique relationship with Ireland, its people and its legacy in the modern world. The faculty in Arts and Sciences has long encouraged the study of all aspects of Irish society, from the country’s languages, art and literature to its rich religious, social and political complexity. Irish culture has shaped, and continues to shape, the present in profound ways, not only in Ireland but on the European continent, in North America and throughout the world.
