Center for Celtic Studies

At UWM, Celtic Studies embraces the cultures of peoples, groups and nations including the early Continental Celts; the Breton, Cornish, Galician, Irish, Manx, Scots, and Welsh peoples; and the Celtic diaspora.

The Center for Celtic Studies (CCS) provides information, research, and coursework in Celtic language, history, culture, politics, and the arts. Our program includes courses taught by UWM and visiting international faculty, as well as study-abroad options in Ireland and Celtic Europe. We also provide enrichment activities to students and the community through educational and social events and through guest lectures.

CCS resources include a speaker's bureau; a lending library which includes books, DVDs, and films; and an electronic journal.

CCS supports the Celtic Studies undergraduate certificate where students can concentrate their studies on the Celtic languages, both spoken and written, or investigate the broader themes of the Celtic world, such as art, archaeology, literature, history, folklore, music and myth. A faculty advisor from CCS provides guidance to help students explore their options. The certificate is open to all current undergraduates at UWM as well as to community members who already hold a bachelor's degree but wish to expand their knowledge in this area.
