The National University of Ireland, Galway is one of Ireland’s foremost centers of academic excellence, and the host institution of William & Mary’s 2014 summer program.

During this month-long program students will explore a variety of different site-specific themes that draw heavily on Irish history, culture, policy, and the natural environment.  The location in Western Ireland on the Connemara Peninsula is both culturally vibrant and naturally beautiful.  The courses planned for this year include two focusing on Irish cinema and film cultures, an Introduction to Modern Irish Literature, and a Geology course about the local flora, fauna and estuary features of Western Ireland (satisfies GER 2 requirement). These courses will be taught by NUI Galway professors and W&M faculty.
All students will earn 6 credits, which will appear as grades on their transcripts and be included in GPA calculations.
 
There is a required 1 credit course to be taken in Spring 2014, which you will be registered for following your acceptance into the program. This course is designed specifically for students going on the summer program and is intended to enhance your cross-cultural understanding of Galway and to cover a variety of pre-departure questions. The scheduling of this course will be dependent on the class times possible for the program participants.
 
 
During their time in Galway program participants will take course-related, regional fieldtrips to sites of cultural and historical interest. Students also have the opportunity to attend the theater and arts events which flourish across the city. In addition to the two courses offered in film studies, the program will also include opportunities to participate in (and potentially volunteer for) the 26th Annual Galway Film Fleadh, the premier film festival in Ireland.

Students will live in university apartment style housing, equipped with kitchens for student use.

The Reves Center advisor for the Galway summer program is Molly DeStafney, mldestafney@wm.edu.
