Dubbed the “Emerald Isle” for its lush and breathtaking landscapes, Ireland is an island west of Great Britain that is home to captivating culture, rich history, and friendly people.

Ireland’s culture is extremely unique as it is a blend of mainstream Western culture and its own indigenous culture. This indigenous culture is alive and well today, and can be seen through Irish music, language, and Gaelic games. Additionally, Ireland has significant cultural impact in literature, helping shape western writing over time. Many famous writers were born here, such as Oscar Wilde, so Ireland is a perfect destination for a humanities program focused on literature!

Ireland has a rich and long past, and anthropology, archaeology, and history students can study its deep roots by visiting ancient Celtic ruins and structures that give a glimpse of what life was like on the island centuries ago. More recent history is also captivating, and students can learn about the Irish civil war, independence, emigration, and more.
