Dublin, one of Europe’s most vibrant and friendly cities, is the capital and largest city in the Republic of Ireland. One of the premier capital cities of Europe, Dublin is a historic and contemporary cultural center and Ireland’s hub for education, the arts, government, economy and industry. Since its founding in the Middle Ages by Viking raiders, Dublin has played a major role in Ireland's turbulent history. Permanently associated with such great writers as Swift, Joyce, and Yeats, Dublin is also the center of a lively music scene, offering everything from traditional Irish music to Irish rock bands like U2. With its mix of urban cool, lush parklands, and sweeping coastline, Dublin pulsates with energy while still retaining a warm, laid-back atmosphere. Visit the Dublin Tourism Board for more information about the cultural offerings of this cosmopolitan city.
It is each student’s responsibility to independently determine if a visa is necessary for travel to any foreign countries visited on this program. Limited information may be provided by the ASU Study Abroad Office, your faculty director, and/or partner organizations/institutions. Where visas are required, failure to obtain a visa may result in your inability to participate and, ultimately, your withdrawal from the program, subject to the terms of the Study Abroad Payment and Withdrawal Policies.
PLEASE NOTE: Visa requirements for non U.S. citizens may differ from those for U.S. citizens; students who are not U.S. citizens are advised to contact their International Coordinator and begin independently researching the visa requirements for their nationality as soon as possible.
This program is open to all majors. Please note: For health science placements, students are required to have a minimum 3.0 GPA and have taken at least one course related to the discipline.
Students will take 2 courses for a total of 6 credits. All students must take the internship option and one additional course.
The following courses are available on this program. Students will select appropriate courses in consultation with the faculty director. Some courses have prerequisites and are not available to every student.
Students may be eligible to earn SGS credit as part of their graduation requirements while on this program. In order to do so, students should contact their academic advisor as part of the application process to discuss this option. Students will not be awarded SGS credit retroactively.

Below you will find information that may help you in planning for your study abroad experience. Early discussions and planning can help to support you in having a positive experience abroad. We invite you to meet with the International Coordinator for this program to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
Study abroad participants may find themselves walking or taking public transit abroad more frequently than they are accustomed at their home campus.
Disability Accommodations Abroad
Individuals with disabilities can and do study abroad, but may find accessibility and accommodation in one of more of this program’s locations very different from the United States. For example, in Ireland, older city sections and more rural towns are less accessible due to centuries-old architecture. This includes cobblestone streets, narrow staircase entryways, and small indoor spaces.
In general, the Study Abroad Office cannot guarantee access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites on this program. Any student who anticipates needing any kind of special accommodation due to a disability should contact the ASU Study Abroad Office early in the planning process to investigate the availability of accommodations (including accessible facilities) on this specific program. Contact the Disability Resource Center and your Disability Access Consultant to include them in the discussion; be sure to give your Disability Access Consultant permission to speak with the Study Abroad Office on your behalf. You can find additional information and resources on our Students with Disabilities page.
LGBTQIA Students Abroad
Students of diverse sexual orientations or gender identities will find that the social climate, laws, and norms of other cultures will often differ from the U.S. If you identify as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or queer student - or if you are still exploring your identity - you may face unique challenges when traveling abroad.
We encourage students who identify as members of the LGBTQIA community to visit the U.S. Department of State website for helpful information about laws and attitudes in this program’s locations, including pre-travel tips and advice on staying safe while abroad. You can find additional information and resources on our LGBTQIA Students page.
Gender Identity Abroad
When traveling abroad, you may find different gender roles and norms than you’re used to. It’s possible that you may be treated differently or be expected to treat others differently based on your (or their) gender identity.
Students of different ethnic and racial backgrounds may encounter unique challenges transitioning from life here in the United States to life as a student living abroad, including but not limited to access to personal care products and services.
You can prepare yourself for the situations you may experience by researching the ethnic composition of your host country and exploring its history of racial and ethnic relations. We encourage students to start that research on ourRacial and Ethnic Minority Students page.
