I’ve found a few web sites for colleges and universities that offer Celtic studies or Celtic languages. Please send me the URL for schools or programs that aren’t listed here. There’s an old list someone else compiled a few years ago here you might want to check but first look at this list compiled by the National Association of Celtic Language Teachers.
The Centre for Celtic Studies
PO Box 327
Raymond Terrace, 2324,
New South Wales, AUSTRALIA
The Centre offers courses in Celtic languages including Welsh, Scots & Irish Gaelic, as well as courses in Celtic history and music. Some of the courses are available via remote learning. The emphasis appears to be on enrichment rather than completing academic degrees.

Boston College Irish Studies Program
According to the brochure, “The Boston College Irish Studies Program explores the diversity of Irish culture through academic and performance activities at the university and through links with Irish universities and institutions in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Belfast. The program strives to present all perspectives on Irish social and intellectual life in order to illuminate the reality of the Irish cultural experience. It addresses those aspects of the Irish community that are unique and those that relate to the world community.”
