Studying in another country is an excellent way to improve your skills in another language. It also increases your cultural awareness and broadens your perspective, something that becomes more valuable to employers every year as our culture grows more international and as employment grows more global. Most graduate programs look favorably on study abroad as well.
Faculty from ELC offer various programs in international education, and there are many more opportunities as well. For more information, consult UMW’s Center for International Education.
Coming Summer 2019: UMW in Dublin
Dr. Gary Richards leads an exploration of Irish Literature & Culture in Dublin
Where: Dublin, Ireland
When: June 1-30, 2019
Description: For four weeks, students have the chance to explore enchanting Dublin, Ireland at the Dublin City University (DCU) International Summer School taking courses in Irish literature, politics, society, and culture. Students will be joined by Dr. Gary Richards of UMW’s Department of English, Linguistics, and Communication. Courses are hosted at DCU’s All Hallows Campus, a campus from a different era with spectacular architecture and a quaint atmosphere but still less than 20 minutes from the heart of Dublin. Students will have the opportunity to study in Ireland’s capital city and explore the beautiful island at large, including Northern Ireland, with multiple academic and cultural field trips throughout the program.
Courses: Students will enroll in two courses: “James Joyce and William Faulkner: Modernism at the Margins,” taught by Professor Richards, and DCU’s complementary “Ireland: Politics, Society and Culture.”
