Irish American University/American College Dublin is a private college accredited by the same agencies that accredit many prestigious institutions such as Trinity College. The college serves approximately 800 students per semester and offers programs for international students seeking abroad experience during the summer. This summer program offers courses in two-week segments where four different disciplines are offered with students earning credit for one three-credit course for each two-week session that they attend.
CMC in partnership with American College Dublin (soon to be Irish American University -IAU) will offer a four-week program with CMC faculty offering courses in the Associate of Arts area. IAU provides our students with residence hall living and classroom space for our faculty in their ideally located campus in the heart of Dublin.
The core values of Irish American University include academic excellence, innovation, ethical integrity, and multiculturalism. Their programs reflect the best of both Irish and American higher education traditions which support CMC‘s goals for preparing students for global citizenship.
Who would benefit from this program? All CMC communities could benefit from this program. This Study Abroad partnership will provide opportunities for CMC students, faculty and staff to expand their global knowledge in all the areas mentioned above.
We need a group of 10 students or more for the program to be fully guided by a CMC faculty. These ten students can take two of any combination of the literature and business courses to be offered. See course information above.
· Unlike our abroad programs with a language acquisition focus, this program greatly expands the learning abroad opportunities for our liberal arts students who want a multicultural experience without the need of a second language –all classes are taught in English.
