USAC_Cork, IrelandProgram Overview

The Cork program offers students the opportunity to enroll in a range of courses in a variety of disciplines at the University College Cork (UCC), one of the oldest universities in Ireland. Discipline choices include Archaeology, Biological Sciences, Celtic Civilization, Chemistry, Commerce and Technology, History, Irish Studies, Nursing, Music, Applied Psychology, Applied Social Sciences, Physics, and Law. A small number of internship opportunities are also available. You may stay for a semester or a full year. Ireland remains a unique country with its own traditions, values, and views of the world. Time in Ireland will challenge you personally, open your eyes to different ways of looking at the current topics in our world, and enable you to experience Irish culture and history.

The University College Cork has an international reputation for its research work, particularly in the areas of fundamental and technological science. We recommend you enroll in Early Start courses, unique to the university. Some of the courses offered are Irish Archaeology, History and Modern Ireland, Literatures in Ireland, Irish Folklore and Ethnology, Management and Marketing in the European Union, and Music in Ireland—all of which give you insight into Ireland’s past and present. Many courses also include field trips which bring alive the course material. Certificate and Diploma opportunities provide additional opportunities for in-depth, multidisciplinary study.
