Immerse yourself in Ireland's rich culture and examine the complex relationship between Ireland and its neighbors. During this summer block program, you'll spend six weeks (or up to 12 weeks) discussing national identity, religion, and immigration issues. Explore the pros and cons of tourism in a country that welcomes seven million visitors annually. You'll learn about beloved Irish storytellers and what influences their work. All your classes will be complemented with co-curricular activities designed to increase your intercultural understanding of "The Emerald Isle."
