Irish Studies

In March of 2012, with the support of the Rochester-Waterford Sister Cities Golf Tournament Committee, St. John Fisher College established a new interdisciplinary Irish Studies Program in the School of Arts and Sciences that has begun offering students the opportunity to explore the literary, social, political, religious, and cultural traditions of Ireland’s past and present.
