Purpose


Where can you find invaders, dissenters, musicians, artists, poets, politicians, scientists, horsemen, brew masters, farmers, rugby players, shoppers, hurlers, designers, weavers, architects, merchandisers, historians, martyrs, sailors, and others? Ireland.

This interdisciplinary course will introduce students to the richness that is Ireland through exploring its culture – past and present. It will examine topics such as The Irish Potato Famine, the sinking of the Titanic, the Book of Kells, the “Troubles” and more. This course will include eight days over spring break exploring sites – both historic and contemporary – in and around Ireland’s capital city Dublin.
