This program to Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland offers students the opportunity to explore and compare education and public health systems and services in each country. We will learn from subject matter experts in the field and explore historic sites throughout the Emerald Isle. Highlights in Northern Ireland include the historic city of Belfast, marked by conflict now dedicated to peace and tolerance, visits to the Titanic Museum, historic castles, the geologic wonder of Giant’s Causeway and the magic of Game of Thrones. Galway will take us to the Cliffs of Moher and Aran Islands. In Dublin, we will see the Book of Kells, stroll across the Ha’penny Bridge and enjoy traditional Irish music and storytelling. Traveling into the lush green, Irish countryside, you may kiss the Blarney Stone and come away with the gift of gab.
 
Note: This program requires moderate physical activity. Be prepared to walk at least a minimum of two miles most days.
