Experience the Literature and History in the Land of Stories
Earn six college credits while experiencing the rich heritage of Ireland. Escaping conquest by Rome, Ireland has retained much of its tribal past in its contemporary culture, in the shrill strains and mournful undertones of its music, and in the warm, communal, and genuine hospitality of its people.
Students will get off the beaten path with experienced professors and tour authentic medieval castles and monasteries; visit two World Heritage sites: the passage tomb of Newgrange (older than the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt) and the majestic Cliffs of Moher.
Students will also read Irish literature in the landscapes where Irish writers drew their inspirations, walk the battlefields that changed Irish history, see world-class museums and heritage centers, and explore the cobblestone streets and markets of Dublin and Galway.
