The Ireland Study Abroad program is a 4-week program based in Galway, Ireland. The program is sponsored by the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) however, it is open to all majors. This program will focus primarily on the study of human rights and post-conflict societies by using the Irish Troubles as the lens through which these topics are explored. All students are required to take 6 hours of coursework—one course on political repression, protest, and violence, and one course on the European Union’s human rights problems and policies.
The trip also includes excursions to other cities and locations in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland—Derry, Belfast, Cliffs of Moher, Game of Thrones sites and so on.
Galway is a city in the West of Ireland and lies on the River Corrib between Lough Corrib and Galway Bay. It is surrounded by the County Galway, and is the sixth most populous city in Ireland. Galway will be the European Capital of Culture in 2020. The city is also called, “City of the Tribes” due to the fourteen merchant families, the “Tribes of Galway” who led the city during the Hiberno-Norman Period. It is home to such sights as the Claddagh, the Spanish Arch, Lynch’s Castle, and Eyre Square.
