Program Description
Come to Ireland and experience the history, architecture, literature, music and culture of Ireland and the Irish. Courses in History and Political Science will allow students to learn about the modern history of Ireland while visiting churches, museums, parks and homes in and around Dublin and a weekly film and novel will provide insights into the culture and urban geography of the city. The final week will be a horseshoe-shaped journey through the midlands and around the coast from the Rock of Cashel to Kinsale, Bantry, Limerick and Galway.

Students will spend their time in Dublin at Trinity College Dublin, each with their own room and sharing a bathroom with one other person. There is a lounge for every four students with cooking facilities. The final weeks on the road will find students sharing a room in hotels with breakfast provided each morning. Spectacular welcome and farewell meals will also be provided.

The Program Fee covers housing, all program-related excursions and admission fees, welcome and closing dinner, and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare or ground transportation to meet the group in Dublin. The program officially begins when students arrive in Dublin. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.
