The Dublin Summer Program provides undergraduates with an intense summer immersion experience. Students live in Ireland for six weeks studying Irish history and culture (counting for a core history or core social science requirement) and also completing a 2nd (developmental) Theology course. Kevin Whelan, Director of the Dublin Global Gateway, teaches HIST 34430/IRST 24208/SOC 34123/ANTH 34320: Introduction to Ireland, and Fr. Gary Chamberland CSC, Director of the Newman Centre for Faith and Reason, teaches a 2nd Theology course.
The belief that cultural immersion animates the educational experience as much as classroom study lies at the heart of this program. Students partake in a full cultural program, including field trips across the entire island, museums, theatre, and gallery visits, guest lectures, sporting events, film screenings, and musical and theatrical performances. The four weeks in Dublin are bookended by an opening week at the Kylemore Abbey Global Center in Connemara and a final week in Co. Sligo, homeland of Yeats and the heartland of the rural west.
The program offers access to the best of Ireland — the vibrant contemporary metropolis of Dublin, and the waters and wild of the Atlantic coast.
