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 3341/5323 -- Irish Literature and ENG 3329/5395 -- Irish Mythology). The program includes weekly excursions to cultural sites in Ireland; in 2019 we will visit Kilmainham Gaol (Dublin), Newgrange, Ross Castle, the Dingle Peninsula, the Rock of Cashel 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 is a city of 200,000 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.
Students must meet with the APD for a pre-application interview. Contact Steve Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment. Participants must complete the required online application and be officially admitted to the program.

Typical day in the program
A typical class day begins at 8:30 with the first of the program's two courses. Classes end at 12:30, leaving students the rest of the day to complete classwork, travel, or visit the city. On group excursion days, we travel together in a bus hired by the program.
As should be the case for any study abroad program, participants should gain deeper insights into the material they study and the assignments they complete by interacting directly with the country and locations that are the focus of our courses. To facilitate this goal, we ensure that all readings and field exercises are tied to the program's required excursions and cultural activities.
