Ireland has been called the 51st State. In recognition of the close ties between the two countries, the United States has been called the 5th Province of Ireland (after Ulster, Connaught, Munster and Leinster, the home of Dublin). Studying in Dublin offers you the opportunity to experience student life in the Irish capital, explore rural Ireland, and sample the cultural highlights of Europe.
University College Dublin
University College Dublin has shaped the face of modern Ireland. It was founded as the Catholic University of Ireland in 1854. Its spiritual father was Cardinal John Henry Newman. Its graduates include James Joyce.
School of Classics
Study Abroad students have come to us from all corners of the United States, both from large research universities and small liberal arts colleges.
Greek and Roman Civilization
Greek and Roman Civilization is one of the most popular Arts subjects at UCD. We offer a wide range of courses in the history, literature, philosophy, art and archaeology of the Classical world. An interest in the ancient world is the only prerequisite. No knowledge of Greek and Latin is required.
Greek and Latin Language
Greek and Latin Language can be studied at all levels. Study Abroad students regularly join advanced courses in Greek and Latin literature. It is also possible to begin Greek and/or Latin in the Fall Semester, and to continue with introductory language classes in the Spring Semester.
