St. Xavier School for Continuing and Professional Studies: Irish
Studies Program

Saint Xavier, which traces its roots to the Sisters of Mercy in
Dublin, Ireland, offers a non-credit Irish Studies Certificate
Program through the School for Continuing and Professional Studies.
The program provides students the opportunity to explore the rich
history and traditions of Ireland... its language and literature,
music and dance -and more. Courses, held at the University’s Orland
Park campus, have included Gaelic Language I and II, Irish Literature
into Film, Art and Genealogy, and Researching Your Irish Roots.

Kathy Murphy, Saint Xavier’s director of Marketing, has been looking
to expand the University’s presence through television. “WYCC offers
the right audience, quality programming and highly affordable
underwriting packages that include free and professional production,”
said Ms. Murphy. “We hope our Irish Studies promotion will be the
foundation for a continuing relationship with WYCC-TV20.” For their
Irish Studies Program, the school has opted to focus its sponsorship
schedule on Out of Ireland, a news, culture and entertainment program
produced in Ireland, with additional spots airing in conjunction with
BBC World News, Balykissangel and during prime time.
