Program Name: Introduction to Northern Ireland
Host City: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Description: The Introduction to Northern Ireland programme is a 4-week pre-semester programme which has been running for approximately 10 years and carries the equivalent of 5 US credits. The programme runs twice-yearly in January and September. Students can choose to attend the 4-week programme only, or take the course as a 'taster' to the second semester Study Abroad programme at Queen's. As the programme takes place in January it is not suitable for students coming to Queen's for the first (Fall) semester or for the full academic year as these students have assessment in January. However, students coming for the second (Spring) semester can easily fit in the programme. The course comprises lectures, field trips, assignments and internships. The course is four weeks long and provides an introduction to aspects of life in Northern Ireland. The presentations will cover a range of topics including politics ('orange' and 'green'), literature, anthropology, cinema & stereotypes, cultural history (both nationalist and unionist), community relations, equality and economic issues. The lectures help students to understand how politics and cultural factors intermingle in Northern Ireland. They also provide a context for the 2-week internships which follow the first week of lectures.
