Faculty-Led Honors Program in Ireland: Summer 2018

Honors Ireland Cover
Dates: July 1-31, 2018
Country Cork and University College
Our home base will be the seaport city of Cork, a community of 125,000 people. Founded in the 6th century, Cork soon grew into an urban commercial center heavily involved in European trade. Cork has seen it all—medieval feuds, the Black Plague, the English War of the Roses, and eventually the modern movement for Irish independence.  Although nicknamed the “Second City,” Cork residents consider their city the real hub of Irish culture and politics.

We will be associated with the University College-Cork, one of Ireland’s most prestigious universities and the 2011-12 “Irish University of the Year.” UCC was founded by Queen Victoria in 1845, although as a site of education, its history is much deeper. The college sits near the monastery and former school of the 7th century Catholic bishop and Cork patron saint, Finbarr. With its history reflected in its classic Tudor Gothic architecture, UCC is now a vibrant, modern campus home to more than 20,000 students from around the world.

Students will take several expeditions to the Irish coast and the Irish countryside. Students will also spend several days in Dublin, as well as Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, and Galway in Western Ireland.

Students will enroll in 6 hours of Honors Credit, including Anchor 3 (in-state tuition possible for all students). Our courses will focus on Irish history from the medieval period to the present with a special emphasis on the late 19th and 20th centuries. Classes will consist of lectures, films, music, literature readings, and sports outings supported by expeditions into the Irish countryside, to the sea, with several days in the capital city of Dublin and short excursions to Belfast in Northern Ireland and to Galway in Western Ireland.
