You will be studying literature, politics and culture in a city with over a 1,000 years of history. From Viking settlement, to medieval Dublin Castle, to the cobblestones streets of Temple Bar, you’re learning will extend beyond the classroom as you discover Dublin firsthand.
The city is a living textbook allowing you to walk in the footsteps of great Irish authors like Oscar Wilde, James Joyce and Jonathan Swift. Many of the most significant cultural and political events that shaped modern-day Ireland took place in the capital, including the Norman invasion in the 12th century that ushered in 800 years of English rule and the Easter Rising of 1916, which sparked Ireland’s long and bloody path to independence in 1921. This literary and historic timeline is evident around every corner.
