Program Description:

Arcadia in Dublin Summer

Program Overview

Spend four to eight weeks exploring Dublin, a diverse and multicultural European capital with a small-town feel and tremendous charm. History, arts, sports, and personal discovery abound along its picturesque streets and in its many green and scenic spaces.

While Americans have a sense of Ireland in their minds from heritage or media, the real Ireland is modern, warm, friendly, and inviting. The city itself is a treasure, but it also serves as a jumping-off point to the rest of Ireland, with its distinct regional identities, vast and proud history, sacred sites and archaeological riches, and varied, breathtaking natural landscapes.

The Arcadia in Dublin Summer program capitalizes on Ireland’s position in the contemporary frame, along with its rich landscape, history, heritage and culture. The program consists of one, three-credit course per session. Taught by expert faculty and incorporating co-curricular elements, current offerings are:

SESSION I

  • Modern Irish Literature – You’ll get to explore the works of major Irish writers, and visit historic sites.
  • Entrepreneurship in Practice – You’ll  develop your own business idea in a country that has become a model for entrepreneurship in the global marketplace, along with visiting  an innovation center. 


SESSION II

  • Irish History and Politics – You’ll delve into the defining political and historical events of 20th century Ireland and visit historic sites.

Courses and Credits 

The Arcadia in Dublin summer program offers courses taught in English in a variety of subjects. For a summary of courses available to students, please see the Arcadia catalogue at studyabroad.arcadia.edu. Specific Ohio State course equivalences and credits will be determined by the appropriate Ohio State academic departments.

Each course a student takes abroad, regardless of the grade received or how course credit counts toward degree requirements, must:
  • Be approved. Student may either select courses from the pre-approved course list or seek course approval via the credit evaluation process; students are strongly encouraged to do this prior to submitting their applications.
  • Transfer back to the student’s Ohio State record.
  • Be completed for graded Ohio State credit. This grade will be factored into the student’s GPA.
PLEASE NOTE: Course approval, either via the pre-approved course list or completion of the credit evaluation process, does not guarantee the availability of the course abroad. Students must consult their program provider regarding course availability and talk with their Ohio State academic advisor to ensure that approved course options are appropriate given their degree requirements. All students should have multiple back-up courses approved. Canceling participation for failure to secure approval for desired course work will be subject to the cancellation policy
