About

LehmanGaeilge is the Irish Language Program in the Department of Languages and Literatures at Lehman College, CUNY. We offer elementary level courses that can be used to complete the foreign language requirement of most B.A. degrees and three Ph.D. degrees. Courses are offered by Lehman instructors on the campuses of CUNY Lehman College, CUNY Queens College, and CUNY Graduate Center, as well as on-line. Students at Lehman College can also take intermediate level and advanced level courses as they complete the Minor in Irish Language and Literature and the B.A. in Comparative Literature (Irish Language Track). Lastly, Old Irish is offered by our professors at the CUNY Graduate Center for students in the Medieval Studies program.

We are extremely thankful to the Fulbright Commission / Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht for funding curriculum development grants over the years to make these courses and degrees available.
