GNI 1137 - Discovering Dublin and Beyond

Credits: 2.0
A study in contrasts, Dublin is one of the most vibrant and dynamic cities in Western Europe. Because modern Ireland is as much a reflection of the past as it is a view into the future, students will examine what it means to be Irish today. Here the rich historical past blends effortlessly with the political and cultural currents that are shaping Europe’s future. Today, the city is a magnet for artists, writers, musicians and scholars, as well as politicians. Boasting a superb transportation system (DART) and rich cultural diversity, the city offers to millions of visitors each year the opportunity to explore and learn about the fascinating past and soak in the enthralling present day. Here, you encounter the Book of Kells a few steps away from cutting-edge art and music scenes. Our trip will also consist of guided tours of museums, landmarks, surrounding counties (such as Limerick), and Northern Ireland. 
All McDaniel College students are encouraged to study abroad. This course is specifically designed to include students from diverse backgrounds and needs. The major goal of this experience is to increase the international knowledge of students who would not typically be able to study abroad because of a specific need or disability. Not only will our students experience another culture, they will also build confidence and strengthen personal identity, flexibility, and creativity. The faculty leader for this study trip must provide final approval for all registered students to participate. By registering for this class, you agree to allow the Office of Student Affairs, along with the faculty instructor of the class, to review and approve your student record. Enrollment in this class is not final until Student Affairs and the faculty instructor for the class approve your registration.
