Overview
IES-Dublin

Modern Dublin is defining the new image of Ireland with its thriving economy, social programs, and art scene. Yet even in the midst of change, Dublin preserves its history, evident in its architecture and in its political, religious, and social institutions. Dublin plays many roles for Ireland, being the Republic's political capital, the home of past and present writers of international stature, and the center of the island's phenomenal economic growth.

Dublin also affords easy access to the beauties of the countryside, seashore and mountains. IES Dublin, ideally situated in the historic part of the city, places students in the middle of the city's business, politics, and arts.

Students can pick from two program options:

1. Irish Studies

2. Writer's Program

Academic Program

You will choose your courses from the liberal arts offerings at the IES Study Center in Dublin and take 15-19 credits. Many of the courses focus on Irish history, culture, literature and creative writing although there is at least one class offered in the areas of anthropology, sociology, communications, political science, and film studies.

You can also participate in a community-based learning class, which consists of time spent with a local organization alongside a weekly seminar which allows you to reflect, learn and research on the issues affecting your host community. 

This program also offers an optional internship, for which you would earn 3 credits and would replace one of your academic courses.
