Arts in Action Modules

Indigenous Arts Module

Exploring the Indigenous Arts is a 5 ECTS class that offers students studying abroad at NUI Galway a practice-based opportunity to learn about indigenous Irish music, song and dance, set in the unique landscape of Connemara. The semester long module seeks to analyse Irish identity and history – and its current position within a global context – and to examine the impact that Irish culture has had on the development of music, song and dance globally. 

If you are a student from any discipline you are very welcome to take this (not core) module in Semester 1. It is an opportunity to get to know and expericence the vivid and exciting culture of Ireland, to include weekly concerts and field trips. This module is a credit bearing module (5) packed with experience and interaction with all aspects of Irish culture.
