Undergraduate Program

There is no undergraduate concentration in Celtic, but there are many ways for Harvard College students to study Celtic languages and their literatures. 

Secondary Field

The Secondary Field provides an opportunity for structured study of an aspect of Celtic languages and literatures in five courses. A student might, for example, take five courses focusing on Celtic folklore and mythology, or five that focus on Irish language and literature or Welsh language and literature.

Harvard College undergraduates are welcome to take courses in Celtic at the 100 and 200 levels without pursuing a Secondary Field.

Language Requirement

Students may satisfy the language requirement by taking two courses in Modern Irish (Celtic 132 and 133r), Modern Welsh (Celtic 128 and 129r), or Scottish Gaelic (Celtic 130 and 131).
