UMW in Dublin
Irish Literature & Culture at Dublin City University
For four weeks this summer, you have the chance to explore the enchanting city of Dublin, Ireland at the Dublin City University (DCU) International Summer School taking courses in Irish literature, politics, society, and culture. You will be joined by Dr. Gary Richards of UMW’s Department of English, Linguistics, and Communication. Courses are hosted at DCU’s All Hallows Campus, a campus from a different era with spectacular architecture and a quaint atmosphere, but still less than 20 minutes from the heart of Dublin. Students will have the opportunity to study in Ireland’s capital city and explore the beautiful island at large, including Northern Ireland, with multiple academic and cultural field trips throughout the program.
Possible excursions include:
Students will be housed in single rooms on-campus with shared bathrooms and kitchen. A meal plan is also included.
Students will earn 6 transfer credits for two 3-credit courses at the Dublin City University (DCU) International Summer School. Students will be enrolled in two courses: James Joyce and William Faulkner: Modernism at the Margins taught by UMW’s Dr. Gary Richards and the DCU course Ireland: Politics, Society and Culture.
This course satisfies the Experiential Learning OR Global Inquiry general education requirement by contract with the professor only.
