Primary goal: to explore the rich history and culture of Ireland while living and traveling in Ireland

  • Study the history of Ireland while living in and experiencing 21st century Irish culture.
  • Spend two weeks in the lively university town of Galway & one week in the busy capital city of Dublin.
  • Alternate days in the classroom with all-day field trips, including ancient forts and tombs, museums, medieval churches, castle, and a prison.

Special considerations:

  • The program involves lots of walking in all kinds of weather.
  • Class is often held in the field or on the street.
  • Requirements include 10 pages of edited writing by the end of the three weeks. (Academic support is available.)
  • Students live in residence halls and shop for/prepare many of their own meals.
