Experience the Literature and History in the Land of Stories
Earn six college credits while experiencing the rich heritage of Ireland. Escaping conquest by Rome, Ireland has retained much of its tribal past in its contemporary culture, in the shrill strains and mournful undertones of its music, and in the warm, communal, and genuine hospitality of its people.
