Broaden your understanding of the contemporary and traditional ways of life in Ireland. Enhance your understanding of what people value as occupations and how they spend their time while immersing yourself in their culture. Conduct interviews, structured observations, journaling, and group discussions as part of your classroom abroad experiences. Learning sites include places such as St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Aran Islands, local hospitals, museums, and even a state of the art child-development center. This course is excellent preparation for students majoring in the health sciences, social sciences, business, and any other discipline where interacting with other people is required.
