Dublin Global Internship Course

Earn 6 credits through the combination of an internship placement and the required Global Cities Internship course. The course enables students to develop personal and professional skills, and empowers them to effectively articulate the value of their internship and other experiences for future professional opportunities.

Global Internship Course (6 credits)  

The Global Internship Course (GIC) provides a unique and innovative opportunity for students to engage in an internship abroad for academic credit. Through its academic content, the course frames and supports learning that occurs at the internship placement and students’ personal and professional development.  

The GIC supports CEA CAPA's philosophy and practice of enabling students to learn about the social and cultural context of their internship through comparative global analysis on both micro- and macro- levels. In-class active learning gives students the opportunity to discuss and analyze theories and models of work, organizational behavior, and management in a cross-cultural context. Out-of-class field studies engage experiential and place-based pedagogies that enhance in-class discussions. Students also analyze the importance of, and approaches to, justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) from national and international perspectives.
