Everyone has a story to tell, and in this class students will develop their own stories as they relate to the culture of Ireland by creating audio and video projects on location.

While visiting ancient sites, cathedrals, and museums and attending concerts, students will document their experience as a participant observer during this important moment in their lives. You’re invited to take advantage of this opportunity to develop your cultural competency and sensitivity in the process of documenting intercultural stories in Ireland.
