Northern Ireland Studies Program

The first thing you notice as a student in Northern Ireland is the beautiful verdant landscape, but there's more to this country than rocky green cliffs and sparkling blue waters. From your home base at Lakeside Manor, a charming 19th-century mansion in Belfast, you'll travel all over the Irish isle visiting important cultural and historical landmarks like SAUL, the site of St. Patrick's first church in Ireland, the Northern Ireland Parliament, and Dublin Castle.


In addition, you will experience the deep impact of the religious and political conflict that has been an important part of Northern Ireland's history. Sit at a table with residents who lived through "The Troubles" as you hear first-hand accounts of the hunger strikes and political clashes that beset Belfast in recent decades. Pray in ancient cathedrals that predate the birth of your home country. Hike among green pastures and ancient forests. This opportunity for experiential learning in Northern Ireland will make your next semester unforgettable.
