This study/travel seminar provides students with a unique opportunity to visit the Emerald Isle. Whilst Ireland boasts a unique culture, history and landscapes which draw visitors from across the world – it also provides an ideal platform for experiential learning for Salem State Students. Engaging a range of disciplines and themes, this trip offers a critical examination of the unique experiences, challenges and practices of tourism, economic development of a peripheral EU State, environmental sustainability, and peace, religion and security in Northern Ireland. Professor Noel Healy, Professor Stephen Matchak and faculty from the National University of Ireland, Galway will aid students in this fun learning opportunity. Students will have ample opportunity to immerse themselves in a new culture, explore the bustling cities of Galway, Dublin, Derry and Belfast, or relax in the beautiful majestic countryside and sleepy villages. Students will be required to keep a journal and gather material to complete portfolios.
