Spend four to eight weeks exploring Dublin, a diverse and multicultural European capital with a small-town feel and tremendous charm. History, arts, sports, and personal discovery abound along its picturesque streets and in its many green and scenic spaces.
While Americans have a sense of Ireland in their minds from heritage or media, the real Ireland is modern, warm, friendly, and inviting. The city itself is a treasure, but it also serves as a jumping-off point to the rest of Ireland, with its distinct regional identities, vast and proud history, sacred sites and archaeological riches, and varied, breathtaking natural landscapes.
The Arcadia in Dublin Summer program capitalizes on Ireland’s position in the contemporary frame, along with its rich landscape, history, heritage and culture. The program consists of one, three-credit course per session. Taught by expert faculty and incorporating co-curricular elements, current offerings are:
