Celtic Literature and Culture

Most of what students will explore in this concentration is modern literature of the Celtic "fringe" -- primarily the literature and culture of Ireland, but also of Wales and Scotland. The courses most central to this concentration in English are English 058 and 258 and 358; students are strongly encouraged to supplement their study by taking English 047 (Scottish Literature) and appropriate seminars, and especially by exploring the exchange programs between Penn and University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork, Edinburgh University, and others.
