In this program, you learn about Irish culture through courses in the humanities and social sciences that focus on themes of tradition, change, and identity in modern Ireland. Writing and literature courses tap into the rich artistic history of Ireland, and you may also choose to participate in an internship or service learning placement to complement your classroom learning. Through our Peace & Conflict Studies Concentration, you can also study “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland and the ongoing peace process. Field study trips are organized within Dublin that familiarize you with the trials Ireland faced, and enable you to meet with guest speakers who describe first-hand their experiences of living through this period in Ireland’s history. Dublin will also be your classroom. Explore the city’s well-known landmarks such as the River Liffey, St. Stephen’s Green, the Dublin Castle, and the Garden of Remembrance. Everything you do is part of your learning experience that helps you complete the picture of what Ireland has been through–and where it’s going. We want you to feel at home in Dublin, so we do everything we can to help you integrate into life in the city, from internships to cultural activities. Our orientation introduces you to this beautiful capital and helps you get to know your classmates and our staff. After you’ve created a home base, field trips introduce you to other regions of the country to help you make the most out of your study abroad experience.
