Program Description


Students are expected to book their own flights to Dublin, Ireland and arrive on June 3, 2017. The program officially ends June 30, 2017, and students may choose to depart for the U.S. on that date, or stay to travel on their own.


Students enroll in two of the following courses:
IIAS 304/ENGL 360: Dear Dirty Dublin - Joyce and Doyle (3 credits)
IIAS 304/ENGL 390: Studies in Irish Cinema (3 credits)
HIST 241: History of Modern Ireland (3 credits)


This program is an initiative of the Irish and Irish American Studies program at the College of Charleston. Students are able to take courses that will not only count towards a minor in Irish and Irish American Studies, but also take courses counting towards a major/minor in English or History, or a minor in Film Studies.

The program will be based at Dublin City University (DCU) in Dublin, Ireland. Students will live in DCU dorms and attend classes in a DCU classroom. There will be several day trips in and around Dublin, most using public transportation, as well as a full-day excursion to Glendalough, an early Medieval monastery south of Dublin. The program will also include a 8-day excursion to the west of Ireland and to Northern Ireland.

Students will have the opportunity to partake in optional urban and rural hiking.

Non-CofC students are encouraged to apply.
