Description of the Summer Course at ETSU

  • Scots Irish in Appalachia
    APST/ENGL 4237/5237

    During even-numbered years, the ASIS program offers a five-week course on the ETSU campus, during which time students may study in depth the Appalachian-Scottish-Irish connection.  We welcome student participants from The University of Edinburgh.

    The course examines the contribution of the Scots Irish to Appalachian culture through lectures, research, field trips, and hands-on experience.  The first-of-its-kind internationally renowned program immerses participants in history, geography, literature, storytelling, arts, music, foodways, language, and folklore.

    Students may register for three or six hours of undergraduate or graduate credit.  The course is offered during the first summer term.
