Discover how peace and prosperity can transform a culture and how conflict, politics, and policy have interacted with Irish culture to form today’s thriving society. Northern Ireland is a welcoming country that’s left discord behind. We’ll show you how it got that way through a combination of focused academics and up-close exposure to history and culture. Through cultural activities, excursions, and challenging and stimulating coursework at the Institute of Irish Studies at Queen’s University Belfast, you’ll explore the social, political, and cultural realities of a community once marked by intense conflict and sectarian violence. Study abroad in Belfast and you'll: - Look at key contemporary issues in Northern Irish society, and develop a broad understanding of the history and politics of the state - Examine how contemporary political communities use the past to construct traditions, ideologies, and identities - Demonstrate multi-cultural leadership skills through participating in various group projects with British/Irish peers - Analyze the complexities of contemporary life in Belfast
