University College Dublin Internship
The eight week program consists of a six-week internship placement at a leading Irish company or non-profit organization. In addition to the internship, students are required to take a special module focusing on Irish history and culture: From Colony to Republic: The Making of Modern Ireland 1169-2007. This module is taught intensively during the first week of the program. Field trips to places of historical interest are an integral component of the module. The program culminates in a research project which students present to faculty and their peers at UCD.
An essential element of the UCD Summer Internship is for students to experience Irish society and culture through an extensive series of excursions and field trips in Dublin and across the island of Ireland. Typical activities may include: a Wicklow Mountain Walk, a hurling match, a trip to the West of Ireland, a castle tour, Irish dancing and traditional Irish music.
