The Program

The goal of this course is to provide students with understanding of intercultural communication practices through study of Irish culture and immersion experiences in Ireland.  The course can be taken for general education credits, speech/journalism major/minor credits, or graduate level credits (academic requirements will vary).  The course will be offered at UW-Whitewater during the spring semester, followed by a mandatory three-week travel component to Ireland and Northern Ireland.  During the travel component, the class will attend lectures at universities in Ireland and Northern Ireland.  Field trips to museums, cultural and historical landmarks, scenic wonders, and cultural events will also be included.  Come hike the Cliffs of Moher, kiss the Blarney Stone, pray by a Celtic cross, follow the Titanic Trail, take a black taxi, pet a sheep, buy a sweater, sing a ballad, trace your ancestors, and have a Guinness (or two) with us this spring!
