Program Overview

Using Ireland as your classroom, you will have the unique opportunity to see the plays and literature you are reading in class come alive on some of the world's most historic sites and stages. Visit the birth homes of Oscar Wilde and Bernard Shaw, Jonathan's Swift's church and grave, sites in Yeats's poems, go backstage at Dublin's Abbey Theatre, see shows in theatres on both coasts, visit the remote islands that birthed modern Irish drama, and use your free time to explore the nooks and crannies that make Ireland one of the most popular destinations in the world. You'll see the places where Irish literature is still being shaped and launched-all while interacting with the Irish culture of the past and present.
