What You Will Learn
Texas State in Ireland spends five weeks in Cork, Ireland, where students earn six hours of credit in Advanced English (ENG 3341 -- Irish Literature and ENG 3311 -- Travel Writing). The program includes weekly excursions to cultural sites in Ireland; in recent years students have visited Dublin, the Aran Islands, Ross Castle and Gougane Barra Forest Park. Students also attend local concerts and plays. Classes meet Monday-Thursday from 8:30 to 12:30, allowing students ample free time for travel in Cork and Ireland, as well as to nearby cities such as London and Paris.
Located in south-central Ireland, Cork City is a cultural center of southern Ireland, home to the beautiful landscapes that for many people epitomize Ireland: rugged cliffs, ruined medieval castles, sweeping green valleys, miles of wild coastline and isolated beaches, and small colorful villages. Cork, Ireland is a city of 150,000 people. During the summer, the city sponsors outdoor concerts, festivals and art exhibits. Although there is plenty to discover in Ireland, from Cork one can catch inexpensive flights to England and countries on the Continent. Classes are held on the campus of University College-Cork.
