STUDY ABROAD AT THE INSTITUTE OF IRISH STUDIES

The Institute of Irish Studies at Queen’s University Belfast is one of the leading centres for research-led teaching in Irish Studies. Queen's University, founded by Queen Victoria, has a record of academic achievement which stretches back more than 150 years. Courses include, postgraduate taught MA and diploma programmes, and International summer school: Northern Perspectives. These programmes allow participants to study Irish history, politics, anthropology, film and theatre, language and literature as well as introducing themes of culture, identity and conflict. Visitors are introduced to the rich and diverse life and culture in Northern Ireland. Belfast is a vibrant city with numerous attractions of natural beauty in the surrounding areas. The Mourne Mountains lie to the South and the Giant’s Causeway forms part of the stunningly rugged Antrim coastline to the North.

INTERNING WITH ITHACA COLLEGE - LONDON

Ithaca College has been placing US internship students in London work placements for over twenty years. Our experienced internship coordinators find placements in all academic areas, but we are particularly strong in the fields of politics, the social services, theatre and communications. All internships have strong cultural and professional components, and they are all academic courses. In the autumn and spring terms students choose either a two-day-a-week model (3 credit hours) or a three-day-a-week model (6 credit hours). To comply fully with British immigration and employment law, fall and spring interns must also enrol in two or three academic courses at our London Center. The Ithaca College London Center also offers a five-week summer internship programme [late May until the end of June]. Summer placements are generally 4 or 5 days a week with a mandatory "internship seminar" one evening a week. To comply with British law, all summer interns must enter the UK with a BUNAC work visa. The visa entitles the student to work full-time in a British host organisation and also to prolong the work placement after the end of the term should it be mutually convenient.

Silver Linings: Travels Around Northern Ireland by Martin Fletcher

For three decades, Northern Ireland has made international headlines. The province has become synonymous with conflict, terrorism, and tortuous efforts to forge peace. But what is life there really like? In this enchantingly original book, Martin Fletcher presents a portrait of Northern Ireland that is utterly at odds with its dire image. He paints a compelling picture of a place caught in a time warp since the 1960s; a land of mountains, lakes and rivers where customs, traditions and old-world charm survive; a place that has given the world not just bombs and bullets but the Titanic, the tire, and the tractor, a dozen American presidents, two prime ministers of New Zealand, and a Hindu god. He gives us an intelligent, fun-loving, God-fearing people who may do terrible things to each other but who could not be more welcoming to outsiders. He describes a land of awful beauty, a battleground of good and evil, a province populated by saints and sinners that has yet to be rendered bland by the forces of modernity. A witty, warm, and revealing travel book.
