Studying abroad with CAPA Dublin will always be one of the best decisions I have made in my life. From the Irish people, to the cultural immersion, to the spectacular trips and experiences I had, I truly had the greatest semester of my college career.

Courses

Analyzing and Exploring the Global City: Dublin  

Cities around the world are striving to be global. This interdisciplinary course focuses on the physical, socio-economic, political and cultural development of Dublin through space and time. Before students explore the city chronologically they will examine ancient Ireland's globality in terms of its educational and religious influences, particularly on mainland Europe. Then, starting from the 1Oth C, students will re-trace the Viking city through to the city's current form that is characterized by urban sprawl, multiculturalism and its connection to Europe and the global economy. Much of the first half of the course will explore the creation of the colonial city (Georgian Dublin) and, following independence from Britain, the creation of the postcolonial city. Each of these phases in the city's morphology can be witnessed / read through an examination of the city's architecture, nomenclature, museums, art and in relation to the post-colonial city, oral histories, which requires an interdisciplinary tool-kit for city exploration and analysis.

  • Globally Networked Learning
Global Internship Workshop (3 credits)  

The Global Internship Workshop is a unique and innovative opportunity for students to combine their internship placement (and living abroad) experience with a weekly in-class educational and mentoring experience (session), which aims to develop students' personal and professional skills while earning academic credit. The Global Internship Workshop fits in with CAPA's philosophy and practice of Globally Networked Learning, whereby students can learn about the social and cultural context of their internship placement and the host region and country, as well as other Global Internship Workshop themes, through comparative global analysis. At times, this analysis will be facilitated through a selection of CAPA Masterclasses given by leading professionals from a diverse range of fields. Thus, the weekly discussion-based sessions with their active learning approach, gives students the opportunity to discuss and analyze theories and models of work, critical thinking and organizational behavior and management in a cross-cultural context.

International Business  

This course aims to develop American students’ understanding of business environments in an international context, with a specific focus on Ireland and the European Union. Students will study the political, economic and ethical contexts for policy and business operations as well as the cultural context of doing business within international/global contexts. Students will compare and contrast this new understanding with their existing knowledge of business policy and practice within America. In this case, as result of taking this course, which includes site visits to international companies in Dublin and or guest speakers, students will be better placed to have the broad perspectives required of successful managers working in an increasingly globalized world and workforce.
