Dublin (May 2022)

Bradley returns to Dublin and Ireland’s oldest university! You’ll live and study at Trinity College, founded by Queen Elizabeth I in 1592 and now widely considered one of Europe’s elite universities. Your accommodations will be adjacent to the magnificent Trinity Library, holding the historic Book of Kells (“Ireland’s greatest cultural treasure”). You’ll also be a few minutes’ walk from the National Gallery and National Library, Christ Church Cathedral, most major historical sites, and the shops, bookstores, and restaurants of Dublin’s central district.

Classes Available

  ENG 302 Travel Writing (W2)

  Prof. Tricia Dahlquist


  HS 350 Gaelic & American Sports: A Cross-Cultural Perspective

  Prof. Steve Tippett
Come to Dublin and experience the Gaelic games firsthand! We will watch Gaelic Football and Hurling and have a go at these sports ourselves! The unique history and development of Gaelic sports will be explored and compared to American sports that we know and love. We will discuss common sport injuries in Gaelic and American sports. The course will also consist of a tour of Dublin’s Aviva stadium as well as historic Croke Park. A one-of-a-kind course!


  BIO 304 (MI, NS) or BIO 475 Landscape and Human Impact in Ireland

  Prof. Kelly McConnaughay
This course traces the development of the Irish landscape and examines the ways that human activity has shaped, and been shaped by, the landscape. Through daily learning excursions in and around Dublin and a 4-day study tour to western Ireland, we will examine changes in the Irish landscape over time, consider the history of human occupation and land use, and explore the sustainability of some of the most beautiful and unique landscapes in the world. This course satisfies NS or MI requirements in the Bradley Core Curriculum (BIO 304), or can be modified to provide upper level major's credit for BIO, BMS or ENS majors.

Note: a $250 surcharge will be required for your 4-day special tour, and it will be worth every penny!


  IS 100 Contemporary World Forces (GP/GS) or IS 490 Directed Study

  Prof. Angela Weck
Learn about the forces that shape your world on the Emerald Isle! Ireland is a place that has experienced the highs and lows of those forces throughout its history, and in its most recent relations with its neighbor, the United Kingdom, and its neighborhood, the European Union. Ireland offers an intriguing context to learn about the forces of secular and religious nationalism, terrorism, and international conflict and cooperation. Plans for this course may include side trips to museums, and even a day trip to Northern Ireland for a look at international relations on the Emerald Isle.


  NUR 433 / 533 International Health & Nursing

  Dr. Deborah Erickson
Dr. Erickson’s famous course has traveled to London, Edinburgh, and now Dublin! This class ventures near and far to explore historical and contemporary global health and nursing issues, and course veterans are the first to say it’s a remarkable experience. And p.s., Trinity College is the home for a well-known School of Nursing & Midwifery.
