Program Description:
Study Irish literature on a January Term program with AIFS in Dublin, Ireland. By including your tuition, housing, meals, airfare and cultural activities in one guaranteed price, AIFS makes it simple for you to live and study in Dublin and experience all that this friendly Irish city has to offer.

AIFS students take in the sights of Dublin on a guided walking tour of the city, visit the famous Guinness Storehouse, and immerse themselves in the traditional culture with an evening of Irish music. The program also includes a day trip to a working farm and an optional trip to the bohemian city of Galway.

Trinity College Dublin

Founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I, Trinity College Dublin is Ireland’s oldest and top-ranked university. Trinity’s 47-acre campus is packed with historic buildings, cobblestoned walkways and cutting-edge facilities, creating a tightly-knit community in the center of Dublin. Trinity’s alumni, including Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett, Jonathan Swift and Ernest Walton, have helped shape the modern world. Offering degrees in dozens of subjects, many ranking in the world’s top 100, Trinity blends four centuries of academic excellence with pioneering research and a vibrant student community in the heart of a European capital city.

Students taking the Modern Irish Writing course will be taught by expert faculty from the prestigious School of English at Trinity College Dublin, supported by advanced research and teaching assistants from the University. The School of English at Trinity is one of the oldest in Britain or Ireland, and in 1867 it founded the first ever Chair in English Literature. Teaching will take place in the Arts Building at Trinity College Dublin and specialist workshops will be taught in the historic Trinity library, built between 1712 and 1732, and at the Smock Alley Theatre, Dublin.

Students on the AIFS program will have access to the Trinity College Health Center, access to the college Wi-Fi network and reader tickets for reading and research privileges for the Trinity College libraries.
