Program Description:


Program OverviewUSAC_London Met

This summer program is designed for students who want to immerse themselves in cinema studies in Ireland. Students will get to work both critically and creatively, taking courses on contemporary Irish cinema and digital filmmaking, as well as attending Ireland’s largest film festival held every year in Galway. Weekly excursions and local outings in and around Dublin and the Irish countryside allow students to learn on location about the country’s rich film history and explore the sites where important historical events, and films about those events, took place.

Students will attend courses in Dun Laoghaire, a community on the outskirts of Dublin, and live with Irish families in homestays. Excursions, the film festival and many other group cultural and social activities are included in the program fee, as well as the full support for students and an intensive orientation.

Program Focus

You will enroll in two, four-credit classes during the program. These courses will combine classroom learning with experiential excursions that provide access to important locations and individuals within the cinema industry and communities of Ireland. All student will take Ireland Onscreen taught by University of Oregon Cinema Studies Associate Professor Michael Aronson. In addition you will take one additional course, either Digital Dublin: Filmmaking in Ireland or Screenwriting in Ireland, both taught by Irish instructors with experience in their fields. 
The courses will consist of weekday class meetings (Monday-Thursday), screenings, guest lectures, field activities including location shooting, excursions to relevant film and historical sites, and a long weekend group trip to the Galway Film Fleadh (Festival).
