Studying in Ireland

Summer study abroad

The faculty of IIAS frequently take students to Ireland for 6 credit hour programs during summer months.  These differ from year to year.  In summer of 2017, we're running two programs.  The director of IIAS can help you explore these opportunities.

  • 14-27 May in Skibbereen, West Cork, Anthropology Prof. Moore Quinn
  • 3-30 June in Dublin, with a western and northern extended field trip; choose 2 classes from
    • IIAS 304/ENGL 360:  Dear Dirty Dublin in Joyce's and Doyle's Fiction, Prof. Joe Kelly
    • IIAS 304/ENGL 390:  Studies in Irish Film, Prof. Colleen Glenn
    • IIAS 304/HIST 241:  History of Modern Ireland, Prof. Cara Delay

Semester study abroad

The College of Charleston exchanges students with Queens University, Belfast each semester.  Under this program, you would pay your tuition as you normally do to CofC.  Room and board in Belfast are comparable to the same in Charleston, and IIAS will work with Queens to find you housing.  You will be responsible for the cost of travel to and from Ireland, but scholarships are available.  Talk first with the director of IIAS, Joe Kelly, who will put you in touch with our Center for International Education.

We also have informal connections to several other universities in Ireland, including University College Cork; Limerick University; University College, Dublin; Dublin City University; and Trinity College, Dublin. Study in these and other universities are available through "third-party" vendors.  Speak with the director of IIAS, Joe Kelly, for more information.
