There are several advantages of studying Irish literature at Dalarna University, both from an academic and a cultural point of view.  

Academically, Dalarna University Centre for Irish Studies is dedicated to providing first-class education in Irish literature. Not only do we offer courses that give an in-depth knowledge of Irish literature from a cultural and historical perspective,  but we also place a great emphasis

on broadening Irish Studies to include the latest developments in literary theory and philosophy. In addition, students develop advanced skills in research methodology and in the English language, thus acquiring an excellent academic basis for further research at doctoral level. We also encourage students to disseminate their research findings and to participate actively in academic debate, by attending conferences and publishing their work. The English Department includes lecturers from all over the English-speaking world, such as the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, England, America, and Australia, and regularly invites foreign scholars in Irish Studies as guest lecturers and seminar leaders.
