Arcadia University Ireland - Dublin Parliamentary Internship (Outgoing Program)
- Locations: Dublin, Ireland
- Program Terms: Fall, Spring
- Homepage: Click to visit
- Program Sponsor: Arcadia
Your fieldwork, which awards six semester hours of credit, will be unpaid and require at least two full days each week. Responsibilities may include conducting surveys, researching and reporting on issues related to public welfare, and preparing for press briefings. Your individual initiative, skills and past experience will largely determine the type of work you are assigned.
Along with your fieldwork, you'll spend two days each week taking courses with other North American interns in the program. The themes of the courses are carefully designed to relate closely to the students' parliamentary internships. These courses, along with an extensive orientation, are designed to provide you with the necessary background to work effectively in your new environment.
We encourage you to contact your program manager for advice on the application process, choosing courses, or simply what you should pack. Once you arrive in Ireland, our staff will lead an orientation program in Dublin that will introduce you to the culture, history and politics of Ireland as well as preparing you for the academic challenges of studying in a different educational system.
