Offered through the Cooperative Center for Study Abroad with SFU’s Dr. Pat Farabaugh
Join CCSA as the Ireland Early Program visits both Irelands, North and South. While based in Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland, we’ll uncover the cultural significance behind Glendalough, Trinity College and places made famous by such writers as James Joyce and Jonathan Swift. Then we’ll head North, tracking the history of Ireland, ancient and modern, stopping at the magnificent coastal World Heritage Site, The Giant’s Causeway, and visiting locations associated more recently with the Troubles in Belfast and Derry. Then it’s off to the beauty of the mountains, valleys and islands of the West of Ireland, where Gaelic and traditional music can sometimes still be heard. Discover the beauty and the tragedy, the history and the hope that define this land still struggling to be united. By combining this intensive study abroad experience with course-specific directed study activities preceding and/or following the travel portion of the program, students may earn three semester hours of college credit.

What does it take to be an international news journalist, responsible for covering anything from political revolution to economic upheaval to climate change to war? This course provides students with the opportunity to put themselves “in the shoes” of a contemporary foreign news correspondent. The course is interactive, and students will have the opportunity to explore a range of different topics in Northern Ireland, while developing the skills they need to take a story from conception to publication. Close attention will be paid to writing and critical thinking, essential qualities of international news coverage.
Participants reside in dormitories and local hotels. Accommodations are based primarily on double occupancy, with occasional use of multi-bedded rooms; single rooms may be available at an additional price.
