Capa Summer Internship in Dublin, Ireland
Dates: June 2–July 25, 2020
This eight-week summer program gives you insight into the significant ways in which Dublin has been imagined, reinvented, and transformed by globalization. Earn 6 or 9 credits.
Dublin is an energetic, charming, and culturally rich Global City. With one in every eight residents being foreign-born, Dublin is very much a multicultural hub. You can find food from around the globe and take part in annual international celebrations such as the Festival of World Cultures.
PROGRAM OF STUDY
Earn 6-9 credits during the summer term (courses are 3 credits unless otherwise noted; internships are 3-6 credits). Credits are issued by State University of New York (SUNY) Oswego.
EXCURSIONS AND ACTIVITIES
Enjoy a full-day excursion to Belfast and a Dublin city tour. Social events and program activities include an arrival reception, mid-term dinner, a farewell ceremony, and a guided tour of Dublin street art.
A guided visit to Croke Park—a national sports and cultural stadium—takes place the first weekend. Other activities reflect what is on in the city at the time and may include a tour of “Googletown” in the Docklands, exploring some of the country’s beautiful medieval castles, or joining in on the fun at the many films, food, and cultural festivals that take place each year.
You can opt to live in a shared apartment or a homestay (with your own room and two meals a day), all within commuting distance to the CAPA center.
TRANSPORTATION, COSTS, AND FINANCIAL AID
Accepted students will pay $8,700 to Saint Mary’s College for the CAPA program. This includes 6 credits, homestay with meals, orientation, study tours, and GEO Blue insurance. Students are responsible for their own round-trip transportation to Dublin as well as all personal expenses. Short term, need-based Travel Grants are available through CWIL.
