About the Program

Program Description

Give back to your host community in an experience that combines meaningful service learning placement with academic reflection in a structured environment. You’ll gain invaluable skills and knowledge while contributing to the quality of life in Dublin’s marginalized communities. Designed for students interested in development education, community volunteering, or advocacy, you'll improve critical knowledge and skill sets through a combination of classes and a service learning placement. Service learning placements are typically situated within immigration, education, disability, youth work, sustainable urban development, and other fields.

Program Structure

You'll enroll in 1 service learning course and 3-4 elective courses at the CEA Dublin Center. You may also enroll in 1 optional elective course at the International School of Business (ISB). Your service learning course meets for 45 contact hours and you'll spend 30 hours at your service learning site. Together, your course and service learning placement are worth 3 credits. Elective courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. You may earn a total of 15 credits (up to 225 contact hours) during the semester.

Your service learning placement hours may take place Monday-Friday; the exact time of day and days of the week will be determined after you arrive. Elective classes meet twice a week, Monday-Thursday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Where You'll Study

Our partner university, International School of Business, is located in the heart of Dublin and offers a dynamic, youthful campus experience. The school’s focus on active learning and international students creates a vibrant, integrated setting in which to gain business education.
Set on the downtown campus of our partner institution, the International School of Business, the CEA Dublin Center has a focus on active learning that takes you out of the classroom and into the city, where you’ll enjoy first-hand encounters with local culture. This compelling, interactive learning environment offers courses in Liberal Arts and Business characterized by global perspective, small class sizes, and experienced faculty. 

Where You'll Stay

When you study abroad in Dublin, you can choose standard CEA housing—in a student residence apartment or homestay—or arrange your own independent housing. Assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.

Life-Long Benefits
I made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I learned a lot about not only France, but who I am and what I am capable of. Everybody should have the chance to study abroad because there are so many benefits.
